Sources: Faried agrees buyout for Rockets move

Kenneth Faried has agreed to a contract buyout with the Brooklyn Nets, clearing the way for him to sign a free agent deal with the Houston Rockets, league sources told ESPN.

Faried is expected to be waived on Saturday and clear to sign with Houston on Monday, by which time the Rockets will have to clear a roster spot for the 6-foot-8 forward.

League sources said he’s expected to move into the Rockets lineup and receive significant minutes immediately as Houston deals with the absence of Clint Capela, who is out four to six weeks following Thursday surgery on his thumb.
