The Rockets are sending Daniel Theis back to the Celtics, Kelly Iko of The Athletic reports. Shams Charania of The Athletic tweets that it will be for a package including Dennis Schroder. Sources tell ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski that Enes Freedom and Bruno Fernando will also be headed to Houston. Woj notes that both Freedom and Fernando could be buyout candidates.
Theis, 29, started his NBA career in Boston, appearing in parts of four season with the club prior to being traded to Chicago at last season’s deadline. He signed a four-year, $35.6MM contract with Houston as a free agent last summer, with the 2024/25 season being a team option.
