The Houston Rockets announced on Friday that they have waived forward Jaron Blossomgame.
Blossomgame was trying to grab the last roster spot on the Rockets before next Thursday's opener.
During the NBA preseason, he averaged 4.2 points and 3.6 rebounds per game in 13 minutes per game.
Last season, the 26-year old averaged 18.5 points and 7.3 rebounds in 33.4 minutes per game in 35 games at the G-League level.
The Spurs selected Blossomgame in the second round of the 2017 NBA Draft.
He finished his four-year Clemson career with 87 games in double figures in scoring, and 32 games with at least 20 points, both of which are top-10 totals in school history. He finished his career ranked fifth in Clemson record books with 1,733 points and eighth with 831 rebounds. He is one of only three players in Tiger history, along with Trevor Booker and Elden Campbell, to post at least 1,700 points and 800 rebounds in a career.
