The Rockets have agreed to terms with Luis Scola on a five-year, $47 million contract. Scola was a restricted free agent this summer and Houston was adamant that they would match any offer he received.
HoopsVibe's Very Quick Call: Open the dictionary, look up underrated, and you'll see a pic' of Houston Rocket Luis Scola.
Consider the Argentine forward's achievements: in 2010 he averaged a solid 16 points and 8 rebounds; his intensity gave the Rockets an identity as a blue-collar squad; and he has never missed a game, playing in 246 consecutive contests for Houston.
And we haven't even mentioned Scola's international resume. He raises his game when representing Argentina in FIBA competitions.
So after the Rockets struck out on free agent power forward Chris Bosh, bringing back Scola was an easy decision.
