HOUSTON, Dec. 26 (UPI) -- Seasoned center Samuel Dalembert was signed to a multiyear contract Monday by the Houston Rockets.

Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey said: "Samuel is someone we had great interest in signing as a free agent. He is exactly the rim protector we have been actively pursing and should fit great into coach [Kevin] McHale's system."

Houston is Dalembert's third team in the last three seasons -- earlier he played for Philadelphia in his rookie season, and for Sacramento after the 2009-10 season.
