His rights were acquired by the Rockets in a pre-1993 NBA Draft trade and they waived him on December 12, 1994. Thus, Riley was not a member of the 1993-1994 Houston Rockets when they won their first title under Michigan alumnus Rudy Tomjanovich, though Riley was put on the injured list before the playoffs started. Following his NBA career, he had a long career in Europe.
