Former Oregon Ducks center N’Faly Dante has signed a two-way deal with the Houston Rockets, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. After going undrafted in the 2024 NBA Draft, Dante, who was denied an extra year of eligibility by the NCAA in June, will now have the chance to prove himself in the NBA.

The 22-year-old from Mali will split his time between the Rockets and their G-League affiliate, the Rio Grande Valley Vipers in Edinburg, Texas. Standing at 6-foot-10, Dante averaged 17 points, 9.2 rebounds, and 1.9 blocks last season for the Ducks.
