Former Iowa Star Jarrod Uthoff Traded To Houston Rockets

The Houston Rockets have been the NBA's busiest team over the last few days, and acquired former Iowa standout Jarrod Uthoff today.

Uthoff, who was at Iowa from 2013-2016, spent the 2017 season between the D-League and the NBA's Dallas Mavericks.

He eventually signed a 10-day deal with the Mavs, and the team signed him for the rest of the season on March 29.

Uthoff appeared in nine games, averaging 12.8 minutes per game, scoring 4.4 points and grabbing 2.6 rebounds per game.

Now, he'll be playing alongside Chris Paul and James Harden, if Houston keeps him on board.

With two highly-paid superstars like Paul and Harden on the roster, along with Ryan Anderson who has an arduous contract, and Clint Capela in line for a big deal soon, the team is going to need affordable guys like Uthoff on the roster. We'll see if he can stick once the season rolls around.
