    Royce White Post-Summer League Assessment

    From ClutchFans.net's version of CW:
    Leaving Las Vegas: Rating the Rockets Rookies | Houston Rockets Blog | ClutchFans


    He does a nice job of going through strengths and weaknesses. Kind of a level-headed homer sort of piece.

    One thing we can appreciate from the Kool-Aid side of things: "Right now, if I was considering buying a Rockets jersey, I’d want White’s."

    One thing that could be trouble, but not a surprise: "He can’t shoot a lick, and that includes unguarded shots from the free throw line."


    But they all made a good impression at the Summer League. If they stay together, this could be an exciting team to watch, even while they take their lumps as rookies.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Report: Rockets agree to sign-and-trade Courtney Lee to Celtics - CBSSports.com

    More forwards for Rockets. Hmmmm. They now have eight forwards.

    I followed the link they gave in there about some altercation between players and the Houston message board crowd loves them some Royce!

    Courtney Lee is a shooting guard period. Not a forward at all.
