Rockets sign free agent guards Sura and Ward

Houston, TX (Sports Network) – The Houston Rockets Monday signed free agent
guards Bob Sura and Charlie Ward. Terms of the deals were not revealed.

Sura split time last season with Detroit and Atlanta and averaged 7.5 points,
4.1 rebounds and 2.9 assists over 80 games. He was obtained by the Hawks from
the Pistons in the trade that sent Rasheed Wallace to Detroit.

Ward averaged six points and three rebounds over a combined 71 games for the
New York Knicks and San Antonio Spurs in 2003-04. New York traded Ward to
Phoenix in the Stephon Marbury trade, but he was waived by the Suns and
finished the season with San Antonio.
