Seven-time NBA All Star Joe Johnson

The Houston Rockets didn't make any moves at the trade deadline this week, but that isn't stopping Darryl Morey from adding assets to his team fighting for the top spot in the Western Conference.

The Rockets are expected to sign Joe Johnson on Monday once his buyout with the Kings clears waivers, according to Adrian Wojnarowski. Sacramento has Vince Carter to mentor the younger players, so the Kings chose to part ways with Johnson.

The team reached an agreement on a buyout with the veteran after he was acquired from the Utah Jazz as part of Thursday's trade that sent George Hill to the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The Bank of England, which is in charge of financial stability, didn't reply to questions about how it would handle such an event. Qatar , which is a major investor in Britain with real estate and other assets, has not been accused of wrongdoing.

"Johnson might not supplant Gerald Green's current role as a shooter off the bench, or they could trade places on a game-to-game basis depending on which player is effective". It is also interesting to note that Johnson played under Rockets head coach Mike D'Antoni during his stint with the Phoenix Suns. His low 3-point percentage this year is likely due to a wrist injury that caused him to miss over a month earlier this season.

Johnson appeared in 32 games this season for the Utah Jazz and averaged 7.3 points (.420 FG%,.274 3pt%,.833 FT%), 3.3 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 21.9 minutes per game.

The Houston Rockets have continued to beef up their roster as they prepare to make a deep run in the playoffs.
