The Houston Rockets will announce Thursday that they've signed three-time All-Star center Yao Ming to a five-year extension, thereby securing his services through the 2010-11 season, a source close to the negotiations confirmed early Wednesday morning.

The story was first reported by KRIV-TV in Houston. The Associated Press reported Wednesday that Rockets owner Leslie Alexander and Yao would participate in a conference call planned for Thursday.
