Swiss swingman Thabo Sefolosha has agreed to terms of a one-year NBA deal with the Houston Rockets, according to multiple reports on Friday.

The 35-year-old veteran of 13 NBA seasons, the league’s first Swiss player, will provide the Rockets with forward depth and solid 3-point shooting after signing the deal, reported by the New York Times, ESPN and the Houston Chronicle.

FEATURED STORIES

Sefolosha, a 35.2-percent 3-point shooter over his 828-game NBA career, spent six seasons with the Oklahoma City Thunder, where he was a teammate of Rockets guard James Harden and Russell Westbrook.

Sefolosha has averaged 5.9 points, 3.8 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 1.1 steals a game with Chicago, Oklahoma City, Atlanta and Utah.

Hip and hamstring injuries kept Sefolosha to 50 games last season with Utah, when he averaged 3.8 points a game and made 43.6 percent of his 3-point attempts, just off the most accurate shooting season of his career from 2011-12 with Oklahoma City.
