Sources: Ty Lawson, Rockets Agree to Buyout

USA Today Sports

The Houston Rockets and point guard Ty Lawson agreed to a contract buyout earlier today, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical.

Lawson was of course traded by the Denver Nuggets in July to the Rockets in-exchange for a future first round pick, Kostas Papanikolaou, Pablo Prigioni, Nick Johnson, and Joey Dorsey. The move was supposed to give James Harden a legit NBA point guard in the back court, but the two were never able to mesh together for balance.

Lawson’s putrid start to the season was a very big headline because the Rockets started off very bad as well. Kevin McHale lost his job due to the Rockets poor start, and for now, Lawson has lost his job until a team picks up, which remains very likely, per reports.

Lawson is averaging 5.8 points, 3.4 assists, and 1.7 rebounds per game this season. He is averaging 13.3 points, 6.2 rebounds, and 2.8 rebounds for his six-year NBA career.
