10-Year Veteran Waived; Now Looking For 5th Team Since July

After spending his first 10 seasons in the league with six different teams, forward Moe Harkless will now be looking for his 5th team of this offseason alone.

The Houston Rockets are waiving the 29-year-old, after receiving him in the curious 8-player trade 11 days ago with the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Harkless began his offseason as a member of the Sacramento Kings, where he'd spent the last season and a half. The Kings sent him to the Atlanta Hawks as part of the Kevin Huerter trade in July. Then the Hawks sent Harkless on to the Thunder in another deal, before the Thunder moved him to Houston. 

After all that, Harkless will now have his choice of teams, as he becomes a free agent. 

He's averaged 6.9 points and 3.5 rebounds over the course of his 10-year career, earning about 22 minutes per game. His high-water mark was with the Portland Trail Blazers back in 2016-17, when he averaged career highs of 28.9 minutes per game, and 10 points. 

The 6'7" forward was the 15th overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft. 

In his place, the Rockets signed power forward Darius Days, who was waived by the Miami Heat only days before.
