Andersen roped in to fill in for Yao

THE Houston Rockets signed Australian center David Andersen to a multiyear contract on Wednesday to make up for the loss of Yao Ming.

The Rockets acquired the rights to the 2.11-meter Andersen in a trade with the Atlanta Hawks on July 14. Houston scrambled to find a center after announcing in June that Yao was out indefinitely with a hairline fracture in his left foot. Andersen was an NBA second-round draft choice of the Hawks in 2002.
