The NBA's Houston Rockets signed former Kansas University center Tarik Black to a two-year, partially guaranteed contract on Wednesday, the Houston Chronicle reported.
The Rockets announced the signing on Wednesday afternoon. The newspaper said on Twitter there was a "small amount" of money guaranteed in the deal.
Black, a 6-foot-8 forward, played 13 games for Houston in the July summer league.
