Brent Barry signs with Rockets

This was a good pick-up by Houston. They need a Barry-type player. Rockets are going to be pretty good this year. But then again....who's not gonna be good??

The 36 year old free agent guard made his decision today, coming to terms on a two year deal. Per team policy, financial terms were not released.

Barry was one of the Rockets' top off-season targets -- in fact, he was contacted by team officials the minute the free agent recruiting period commenced.

The former Spur brings a sweet shooting stroke and a bevy of postseason experience to Houston. For his career, Barry has made more than 40 percent of his shots from beyond the three point arc. And while injuries limited his effectiveness at times last season, he proved to be a valuable weapon during the playoffs thanks to his red-hot shooting (46.3 percent on 3s) and a superb performance in Game 4 of the Conference Finals when he exploded for 23 points.
