This is sure to make your late-season signee feel wanted on the team Houston, good job!
That was sarcasm by the way.
Only two weeks after signing him to a two-year deal, the Houston Rockets waived Tim Quarterman, with the shooting guard playing 3 games with the team.
To replace Quarterman, the Rockets signed fellow shooting guard out of Duquesne Aaron Jackson for the final game of the season and the rest of the playoffs.
In his first and only game for the team this season, Jackson played a whopping 35 minutes, scoring eight points and collecting 3 rebounds in a win over the Sacramento Kings.
The deal was so last-minute that the Rockets didn’t even have a chance to make a jersey for their newest addition, and in an effort to save time, used Quarterman’s jersey with material stitched over the name on the back.

Given the fact that Jackson probably won’t be playing in any playoff games for the Rockets this season, Houston probably made the right choice in not making up a jersey for the 31-year-old.
