Okay, let’s try this again.

The Houston Rockets have re-signed big man and Nene Hilario to a three-year, $11 million contract.

This comes just a day after the original contract with the Rockets — valued at four years and $15 million — was tossed on the scrapheap due to the over-38 rule..

Nene went back to the drawing board, and was reportedly looking for more length in a better deal. It doesn’t look like he found it, and he ended up taking a contract that was similar in a year-by-year value with the Rockets.

Via Twitter:

Nene Had a resurgence in Houston last season, with a career high in field goal percentage to go along with an excellent offensive rating. No doubt playing along James Harden helped, and with the recent addition of Chris Paul, Nene Should benefit from those factors again in 2017-18.
