On Wednesday night, the Memphis Grizzlies hosted the Houston Rockets in a Western Conference clash. While the Grizzlies are out of playoff hunt, the Rockets are hoping to track down Golden State and Denver for the top seed in the West.

James Harden leads the NBA in scoring and the Rockets recently welcomed star point guard Chris Paul back into the lineup. With both players back on the floor together, Houston is proving it's one of the best teams in the league.

When the Rockets took the floor on Wednesday, there was a familiar face next to their bench.

Former college football star Johnny Manziel was sitting court-side at the game.

Check it out.

Manziel is a new Memphis resident after signing a contract with the Memphis Express of the Alliance of American Football.

The former Texas A&M star was kicked out of the CFL for reportedly failing to show up to a scheduled counseling session earlier this year.

Now he hopes to have found a new home in Memphis with the AAF. Manziel might not have to wait long to get his first start with the new team.

Former Penn State quarterback Christian Hackenberg was benched and backup Zach Mettenberger suffered an ankle injury last weekend.
