The Houston Rockets continue to make moves this offseason, with veteran center Tarik Black being the latest player to join their roster.

Shams Charania of the Vertical reported Friday that Black and the Rockets agreed to a deal, though terms were not disclosed. 

Black knows the Rockets organization after playing 25 games for the team during his rookie season in 2014-15. He averaged 4.2 points and 5.1 rebounds per game in Houston. 

After the Rockets waived Black, the Los Angeles Lakers claimed him. The 25-year-old appeared in a career-high 67 games for the Lakers last season. He averaged 12.6 points and 11.3 rebounds per 36 minutes in 2016-17, per Basketball-Reference.com

Black will be part of a rotation at center for the Rockets next season that also includes Clint Capela and Nene.
