The Houston Rockets made a transaction on Friday ahead of their trip to the Philippines and Taiwan when they waived center Jordan Henriquez. The team has most of their big men back from injuries heading into the first preseason games, so there was no need to have Henriquez on the roster. His contract did have any salary protection.
