Joe Johnson plans to sign with the Houston Rockets at the veteran’s minimum for the remainder of the season, league sources told Yahoo Sports. The guard/forward has finalized a contract buyout with the Sacramento Kings.

Johnson, a seven-time All-Star over 16 NBA seasons, would join center Brandan Wright as buyout additions for the Rockets. Johnson was traded to Sacramento on Thursday after spending parts of two seasons with the Utah Jazz.

Johnson, 36, gives the Rockets another proven wing scorer and playmaker. He also played for Rockets head coach Mike D’Antoni in three season in Phoenix.

Johnson has averaged 7.3 points and 3.3 rebounds in 32 games this season. For his career, he has averaged 16.2 points, four rebounds and four assists while playing for Boston, Phoenix, Atlanta, Brooklyn, Miami and Utah.

Once free agency starts on Sunday, the Houston Rockets are planning to recruit Jimmy Butler to push the Philadelphia 76ers for a sign-and-trade deal that would allow the All-Star forward to join James Harden and Chris Paul, league sources tell ESPN.

The Rockets don’t have the salary-cap space to sign Butler, so they’d need the threat of the Sixers losing him for nothing to a team with the available room to motivate the Sixers into a trade. The Rockets would also potentially need to make this a multiteam deal to satisfy the rules of Base Year Compensation that would cover Butler’s outgoing salary.
