Rockets' Isaiah Taylor: Signed partially guaranteed deal with Rockets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor signed a partially guaranteed deal with the Rockets Thursday, Shams Charania of The Vertical reports.

Taylor decided to forgo his senior season to enter the NBA Draft, and while he did not get drafted, he still managed to get signed by Houston shortly after the draft's conclusion. Taylor brings elite speed at the point guard position, but lacks a consistent jump shot, as he never shot over 30 percent from behind the arc in any of his three seasons at Texas.

Rockets' Kyle Wiltjer: Signed three-year deal with Rockets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wiltjer signed a three-year deal with the Rockets Thursday, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Wiltjer came into Thursday's draft as one of the most dynamic scorers in the entire player pool. He can stretch the floor as a 6-foot-10 power forward, shooting 43.8 percent from distance in his final season at Gonzaga. However, with his diverse offensive skill set comes liabilities with his athleticism and defense. What may ultimately limit Wiltjer's potential as an NBA player will be his inability to guard anyone at his position, especially on the perimeter.

Rockets' Gary Payton: Signed three-year deal with Rockets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Payton signed a three-year deal with the Rockets Thursday, Chris Haynes of Cleveland.com reports.

The son of the NBA great of the same name, Payton was one of the surprise players to not be drafted, but it took no time after the draft concluded for the point guard to find a team. Already 23 years old, Payton has the refined skill set of a young NBA point guard and is coming off a productive season at Oregon State where he averaged 16.0 points, 7.9 rebounds, 5.0 assists and 2.5 steals per game. With only one true point guard on Houston's roster in Patrick Beverly, Payton finds himself in a prime opportunity to contribute as a rookie in the league.

Rockets' Zhou Qi: Selected No. 43 overall by Rockets
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Zhou was selected by the Rockets with the 43rd overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft.

Zhou is a 7-foot-2 shot blocker out of China. He spent the last year in the Chinese Basketball Association, posting averages of 15.8 points, 9.8 rebounds and 3.2 blocks per game. Despite being so tall, he's still mobile for his size and has shot the three-point ball capably, so that's another positive trait to add on to his smooth stroke. Zhou is still very thin and there remain some questions about his actual age -- he's listed as 20 years old, but some scouts familiar with him believe he might be 23 or 24 -- so it's uncertain if he'll be able to gain enough strength to realistically compete at the NBA level.

Rockets' Chinanu Onuaku: Selected No. 37 overall by Rockets
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Onuaku was selected by the Rockets with the 37th overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft.

Onuaku will likely make his hay as a professional on defense, as he racked up 104 blocks and 50 steals in 66 career games at Louisville. In addition to contesting shots around the rim, he should be a plus rebounder, as evidenced by averaging 13.8 rebounds per 40 minutes last season. With Dwight Howard on the way out in Houston, Onuaku could be in the mix for reserve minutes at center if he impresses in the summer league and training camp.
