The Houston Rockets will join the North American League of Legends Championship Series (NA LCS), according to a report Thursday by TheScore.

The Rockets would have to pay the $13 million entry fee as a team that wasn’t already in the NA LCS. According to the report, the Rockets passed on attempting to join Overwatch League.

The Rockets would be the third NBA team to be accepted into the NA LCS, joining the reported additions of Golden State Warriors owner Joe Lacob and his son, Kirk, and the Cleveland Cavaliers. Riot Games announced the franchised league in June and said last month the LCS would remain at 10 teams.

Other reported additions to the NA LCS include Team SoloMidCounter Logic GamingCloud9Team LiquidEcho Fox, OpTic Gaming, and FlyQuest. Four teams so far — ImmortalsDignitasPhoenix1 and EnVyUs — have reportedly been rejected despite playing in the LCS this year. The acceptance of the Rockets would complete the field of teams at 10.
