A fresh start usually does someone who needs it justice. In this case, now-former Houston Rockets guard Ty Lawson gets his opportunity to start somewhere new. The Rockets today have bought out his contract, allowing the veteran guard to sign to whomever he sees fit.
“The Houston Rockets reached a buyout settlement on Tuesday with point guard Ty Lawson pending league approval, according to a source.
NBA teams have to release players by Tuesday in order for them to become eligible to sign with another team and participate on a playoff roster.”
Lawson should use where ever he lands to use that time to reclaim his play of old. If not, it maybe a long rest of the season for Lawson. Buyouts happen and players go places they don’t necessarily fit in. Fortunately for Lawson, he has the opportunity to start fresh with a new team.
