Free-agent center Boban Marjanovic has agreed to a one-year contract to return to the Houston Rockets, Mike Lindeman and Jeff Schwartz of Excel Sports Management told ESPN on Sunday.
Marjanovic — one of the most popular teammates and marketable players in the league — is beginning his ninth season in the NBA and stays with a Rockets organization that appreciated his presence on and away from the court.
Marjanovic, 35, played 31 games for the Rockets a season ago. At 7-foot-3, he’s had stops with the Spurs, Pistons, Clippers, 76ers and Mavericks.
Marjanovic, a native of Serbia, has averaged 5.6 points and 3.6 rebounds in his NBA career.
