Rockets' Sam Dekker: Finishes summer league out on strong note
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Dekker closed out the Las Vegas Summer League as the Rockets' third-leading scorer with 14.4 points per game.

Houston's 2015 first-round draft pick appeared in just three games for the Rockets during the 2015-16 campaign before undergoing back surgery in November. Even though this marked Dekker's second summer league, many close to the Rockets were eager to see how the 6-foot-9 forward would perform in his return to action. It's safe to assume that Dekker exceeded expectations, especially in regards to his shooting. Dekker knocked down 39 percent of his threes and shot 54 percent from the floor. With Dwight Howard no longer in the mix, someone will have to replace his production. While Dekker obviously won't contribute at center, the trickle-down effect of Howard's departure, as well as that of Terrence Jones, could yield some minutes to Dekker.

Rockets' Chinanu Onuaku: Signs three-year rookie contract
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Onuaku signed a three-year rookie contract Wednesday with the Rockets, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Onuaku's contract is likely only partially guaranteed, but as the Rockets roster is currently constructed, he's tentatively in line to serve as the team's third-string center in 2016-17 behind starter Clint Capela and top backup Nene Hilario. The 19-year-old from Louisville finished off summer league play in Las Vegas last week, averaging 3.0 points, 5.4 rebounds, 1.2 steals and 1.0 block across 21.2 minutes per game in his five appearances.

Rockets' Montrezl Harrell: Productive at summer league
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harrell averaged 14.8 points, 5.6 rebounds and 2.0 assists in five Las Vegas Summer League games.

The Louisville product had only six points in Houston's opening game, but he reached double-figures in each of the final four contests, including a 20-point, eight-rebound, four-assists showing in a consolation bracket win over Milwaukee on Friday. Harrell shot better than 47 percent from the floor but launched a number of ill-advised threes, finishing just 3-of-19 from deep for the week. Entering his second NBA season, Harrell will have a chance to step into a slightly larger role after the departure of Terrence Jones. However, he's not much more than an energy big man at this point in his career, so he's close to fantasy-irrelevant in most formats.

Rockets' Pablo Prigioni: Signs two-year deal with Rockets on Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Prigioni has signed a two-year deal with Houston, Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical reports.

Prigioni's second year on his contract will be a team option. The 39-year-old point guard was a serviceable backup last year for the Clippers, although his stat line of 2.5 points, 2.2 assists and 1.9 rebounds per game would seem to suggest otherwise. The veteran's strength lies in his fundamental passing and court presence which, unfortunately, doesn't translate to a whole lot of fantasy production. Even if Prigioni does win the backup job in Houston behind Patrick Beverley, he will likely not be a consistent fantasy producer in 2016-17.

Rockets' Gary Payton: Out for rest of Summer League due to sports hernia
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Payton has been ruled out for the rest of Summer League with a sports hernia, Jonathon Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Payton suffered the injury on Sunday during the Rockets' Summer League matchup with the Kings. It's unclear how serious Payton's injury is, but there will likely be more updates on his status as the season nears.
