The Rockets have reached deals with Corey Brewer and Patrick Beverley to keep them in Houston.

The agreements came on Friday, with Beverley's agent Kevin Bradbury saying his client got a four-year, $23.4 million deal. The final year of the contract is non-guaranteed.

A person with knowledge of the deal tells The Associated Press that Brewer agreed to a three-year, $24 million deal. The person requested anonymity because the deal has not been officially announced. Both contracts cannot be signed until July 9.

Beverley gives the Rockets a tenacious defender at point guard who was sorely missed when he went down with a wrist injury.

Brewer provided a boost when he was acquired during the season in a trade from Minnesota.

Yahoo Sports first reported both agreements.
