The Philadelphia 76ers, led by former Houston executive Sam Hinkie, continue to mine the Rockets for talent.
The 76ers' new general manager, who traded for Royce White and Furkan Aldemir last week, reportedly claimed guard James Anderson and center Tim Ohlbrecht off waivers from Houston on Monday.
Anderson, a fourth-year veteran, averaged four points and two rebounds in 10 minutes per game last season in Houston. Ohlbrecht is a project who appeared in just three games last season.
Both have unguaranteed minimum contracts, so the Rockets owe nothing if one or neither works out.
The Rockets waived Anderson and Ohlbrecht when they acquired Dwight Howard.
