Patrick Beverley is known as being an agitator on the defensive end of the floor, and that schtick provides a perfect complement to the offensive brilliance of James Harden in the backcourt of the Houston Rockets.
Beverley was a restricted free agent this summer, but re-signed in Houston on an extremely reasonable deal that will help secure the future of the team that finished last season with the second-best record in the Western Conference.
Pat Beverley’s deal with Houston, I’m told: $ 18 million over 3 with a 5 million non guaranteed year in year 4.
Incredibly cost-effective deal for the Rockets.
Beverley averaged 10.1 points, 4.2 rebounds and 3.1 assists in Houston last season, and started in 55 of his 56 regular season appearances while playing 30.8 minutes per contest.
