After signing a contract this summer overseas, last week Von Wafer unceremoniously reached an agreement to leave that team and return to the USA.

On monday it seemed certain that Wafer would return to the Houston Rockets–whom he played for last season–with Chase Budinger out. However, according to the Houston Chronicle, Wafer failed his physical. Amazingly enough, he reportedly recently failed a physical in Memphis. The reason for his failure hasn’t been specified, but it may have something to do with a history of back issues.

His loss was another man’s gain, as the Rockets swooped in and signed Mike Harris.
