The Houston Rockets went 4-1 in the Orlando Summer League, and their strong play can largely be attributed to the performances of several rookie prospects. Many of the prospects played significant minutes and contributed in more ways than one while on the floor.
The team is not taking part in the Las Vegas Summer League (which runs through July 22), so a couple of their more intriguing prospects went on to play with other teams in an effort to get more exposure.
Houston only has a few spaces left to fill on the roster. After a few changes to last season's roster, the Rockets are poised to be much improved and will rely now on more veteran production. With room still left on the roster, general manager Daryl Morey would do well to sign a prospect or two from the summer league.
They fit in the budget, have potential and have shown what they can do on the court. What's not to like?
