The Houston Rockets are reportedly poised to add another weapon in their bid to dethrone the Golden State Warriors in the West.

Various reports emerged Saturday morning indicating that Joe Johnson, who will soon be bought out by the Sacramento Kings, will join the Houston Rockets once he can do so.

There were expected to be some high-profile suitors for Johnson, but the Rockets have won the race. It’s unclear how far down the road Johnson got in talks with anyone else. The 36-year-old wasn’t a huge factor on the Utah Jazz this season, but he did average 12.9 points per game in a primarily reserve role for them last season. That’s the kind of contribution Houston will be hoping for.

QUIZ: Name every member of the back-to-back NBA Champion Houston Rockets

The Houston Rockets won back-to-back NBA titles during the 1993-94 and 1994-95 seasons (and between the two Chicago Bulls three-peats). Can you name all 22 players from those rosters?
