The former University of Washington point guard spent the preseason with the Rockets, before becoming one of the team’s final cuts heading into the year.
This will be Conroy’s third stint with an NBA club. He previously played with the Memphis Grizzlies and Los Angeles Clippers in 2007.
At 27 years of age, Conroy is in his fifth season of pro ball.
A former walk-on at UW, Conroy would go on to become the Huskies’ all-time leader in assists, with 515, by the time his collegiate career came to a close. He then embarked on an odyssey around professional basketball that has taken him from the NBDL, to the NBA, to the Italian and Euro leagues.
Conroy was averaging 14.3 points per game and, perhaps more impressively, 8.4 assists per game with the Rio Grande Valley Vipers so far this season.
On a side note, Conroy is the all-time leading scorer in the history of the NBA Developmental League. In parts of five seasons with D-league affiliates Tulsa, Albuquerque, and Rio Grande Valley, Conroy has amassed 2,948 career points, good for an average of 18.0 points per game.
