Three things to watch in Rockets training camp

Photo by Troy Fields/NBAE via Training camp is approaching, so lets go over some notes to see what to possibly expect. NBA training camps are now less than a week away, starting on September 28. Here are three things to keep an eye on in camp. What to make of Dante Exum? Since the Houston Rockets decided to meet John Wall halfway in finding a different team for him, so many opportunities were created for the younger players on the team. The Rockets just signed 26-year-old Dante Exum to the roster, which could earn him up to $15 million over the next three seasons....

If Ben Simmons changes positions, he could be a great fit for Rockets

If Ben Simmons changes positions, he could be a great fit for Rockets

Photo by Troy Fields/NBAE via If Simmons moves from point guard, he could fit in H-town. Once the draft was complete and free agency started winding down, many thought the only Houston Rockets news they would see would be players training. However, after the last off-season, we should have known that there is no offseason, especially for the Rockets. First, the news that John Wall would not be part of the rotation in the future and that both sides are working on a trade. The latest report does not directly mention the Rockets but could eventually merge with the Wall...

Hoopers Hoopla: History shows that Kevin Porter Jr. is built for this Rockets-sized opportunity

Photo by Cato Cataldo/NBAE via KPJ has had to prove himself over and over, and it’s taken him all the way to the precipice of stardom with the Rockets. Charisma. If you were to go look up synonyms for “star power”, then this would be one of the first words suggested to you. It’s a perfect blind of the NBA and everyday life’s meaning of the word - in the league, the term is used best when describing the pull that a player has on his respective front office along with their appeal amongst fans. But in the real world, it’s a bit more simple - it’s just a...

What if LeBron James signed with the Rockets in 2018?

What if LeBron James signed with the Rockets in 2018?

A look into this alternate universe. During the 2018 offseason, LeBron James left the Cleveland Cavaliers for the second time in his career. Before announcing his move to Los Angeles, experts speculated for months where James would play next season. In fact, the Houston Rockets were considered frontrunners in the early stages of free agency. With the core of Chris Paul, James’ close friend, and James Harden, the reigning league MVP, the foundation for a championship run was certainly laid out. So what if LeBron James signed with the Houston Rockets in 2018? In order to...

Is Eric Gordon on his way out of Houston?

Is Eric Gordon on his way out of Houston?

Photo by Noah Graham/NBAE via The longest-tenured Rocket may be a Rocket no more. When James Harden was traded by the Houston Rockets this past January, Eric Gordon became the longest-tenured Rocket on the roster. EG has been through all of the highs with the Rockets, and he’s won five playoff series with the team over the course of his five years with the team. Those five years include this past season when the Rockets plummeted into the doldrums of the league and a 17-win campaign. Gordon was not a primary factor as to why the Rockets lost so much considering he...
