Another Warriors free agency target is joining the defending NBA champions. This time, it is former Texas A&M All-American Danuel House.
House was undrafted in 2016, after a strong senior year in College Station. He's played the majority of his first two pro seasons in the G-League.
In 2016, he made one appearance for the Washington Wizards, grabbing a rebound in one minute of time on the court.
His 2017 season was more impactful. House made 23 appearances for the Phoenix Suns, including three starts.
In that time, he averaged 6.6 points, 3.3 rebounds, and 1.1 assists per game, playing 17.5 minutes per contest. He is coming off of a few strong summer league appearances for the Houston Rockets.
According to NBA insider Shams Charania, Danuel House is the latest Golden State Warriors free agency signing.
It is unclear how great a shot House has of sticking with the big club into the season. However, he's shown some things, and has the makings of a strong switchable defender on the wing at 6-foot-7 and over 200 pounds.
Last year, he had two of his best performances for the Suns against the Warriors.
On April 1, he scored 16 points, along with six rebounds and three assists in a 10-point loss. One week later, he eclipsed that career high, scoring 22 points and grabbing eight boards in 45 minutes. Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green all played over 30 minutes in that Warriors win, so it wasn't against a late-season skeleton squad either. Maybe it shouldn't be too much of a surprise that House was a Warriors free agency target.
As a senior at Texas A&M, House averaged 15.6 points and 4.8 rebounds per game. The Aggies won a piece of the regular season SEC title that year and reached the Sweet 16 as a three-seed in the NCAA Tournament. House was a first-team AP All-American that season.
