A second-round pick in 2014, KJ McDaniels took a gamble by only signing a one-year, non-guaranteed deal in his rookie season. But it’s paid off now, as McDaniels has inked a three-year deal with the Rockets, who picked him up from the Sixers during the 2014-15 season.
Calvin Watkins of ESPN reported the deal on Sunday:
KJ McDaniels signs 3-year $10 million deal to remain with the Houston Rockets.

Soon after, KJ confirmed the news via his Twitter account:
But I'm too happy and too blessed and thankful to be back apart of #RedNation
