Rockets center Nene agrees to new 3-year/$11M deal

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Free-agent center Nene has agreed to a new deal to stay with the Rockets, sources told ESPN.

The new contract is for three years, $11 million.

Last week, the Rockets and Nene had agreed to a four-year, $15 million deal but that had to be pulled due to an age rule, ESPN reported.

Nene averaged 9.1 points and 4.2 rebounds primarily as a reserve in his first season with the Rockets last season.
