Basketball: Rockets sign Solomon

Former Cal forward Richard Solomon signed a summer league contract with the Houston Rockets.

The 6-foot-10 Solomon led the Pac-12 in rebounding at 10.2 per game while also averaging 11.0 rebounds. He was among just three players in the six power conferences to average a double-double.

Solomon and the Rockets begin play in the Orlando summer league on Saturday against the Detroit Pistons.

Solomon’s signing came one day after former Golden Bears teammate Justin Cobbs was signed by the Memphis Grizzlies. The two will face each other when Houston meets Memphis on July 10.
