Philadelphia 76ers President of Basketball Operations Daryl Morey announced today that the team has signed Danuel House Jr. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.
“Danuel is a very talented two-way player who immediately bolsters our wing depth and strengthens our roster,” Morey said. “He is a willing shooter from outside who can space the floor and punish the opposition. On defense, his size, athleticism and ability to guard multiple positions make him a tough match-up, especially as we plan for a deep playoff run. I’m excited for Danuel’s future in Philadelphia.”
House Jr. played in 42 games in 2021-22 between Houston, New York, and Utah, averaging 5.9 points, 2.6 rebounds, and 1.0 assists. He shot .376 from beyond the arc, connecting on at least four three-pointers on three separate occasions.
House Jr. closed out the 2021-22 campaign with the Jazz, shooting 34-of-82 from beyond the arc (.415). He tallied 10-plus points on six occasions, including a season-high 21-point performance on 7-of-11 shooting (4-6 3FG) at Memphis on Jan. 28.
Signed as an undrafted free agent by Washington in 2016, House Jr. has produced 8.5 points (.427 FG, .366 3FG, .764 FT), 3.6 rebounds, 1.3 assists, 0.7 steals, and 24.3 minutes in 204 total NBA games (98 starts) over six seasons with Washington, Phoenix, Houston, New York and Utah. His three-point percentage ranks ninth among players with at least 315 made triples and 5,000-or-fewer minutes since entering the league in 2016.
The Houston native also has NBA G League experience, recording career marks of 18.2 points (.450 FG, .368 3FG, .789 FT), 5.3 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 1.2 steals, and 32.0 minutes in 60 games (42 starts) with Delaware (2016-17), Northern Arizona (2017-18), and Rio Grande Valley (2017-19).
