According to the Houston Chronicle, the Rockets have released former Wildcat Josh Harrellson.
Harrellson, who was acquired by the Rockets on July 11 in a trade with the New York Knicks, was let go to make room for free-agent acquisition Carlos Delfino, the team announced.
Harrellson played in two Summer League games with the Rockets.
He averaged 4.4 points and 3.9 rebounds in 37 games with the Knicks as a rookie last season. New York traded Harrellson as part of a deal to bring in Marcus Camby.
Harrellson's contract was not guaranteed although it would have become guaranteed on Thursday, the Chronicle reported.
Harrellson told LEX 18 a few days ago that he wasn't sure his future would be in Houston, and that he would stay in shape to hopefully land with another team if the Rockets let him go.
