Now non-retired and no longer a member of the Houston coaching staff, Gerald Green is ineligible to play for the Rockets in the 2021-22 NBA season due to salary cap circumvention rules and the fact that he was already on the team’s payroll as a player development coach.

However, that doesn’t mean the team can’t use its resources to help longtime fan favorites win the NBA chance elsewhere.

to that end, Shams Al-Sharaniyah The Athletic reported Friday that Green will join the Rio Grande Valley Vipers, the Houston branch of the NBA. If he plays well, the 35-year-old could become a candidate for a 10-day contract from another NBA team, as clubs have been awarding these players frequently this season due to the absence of COVID-19.
