Rockets' Zhou Qi: Swats five in decisive SL win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Qi posted 12 points (4-6 FG, 1-2 3PT, 3-6 FT), eight rebounds, five blocked shots and an assist across 23 minutes in Monday's 105-80 win over the Clippers in a Vegas Summer League contest.

It appears Houston can never have too many big men. Qi has bounced around from the G-League to the big show since being drafted in 2017 and has managed to do some damage inside when given the opportunity. HIs Summer League invite is a big opportunity for him to prove that he belongs on the Rockets roster as a reliable backup for Clint Capela. Qi needs to put together more games like this one to get close to that goal.

Rockets' Vince Edwards: Posts 20 points in blowout SL win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edwards recorded 20 points (8-12 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), eight rebounds and two assists across 32 minutes in Monday's 105-80 win over the Clippers in a Vegas Summer League contest.

the four-year player from Purdue was selected by Houston in the second round and is mostly considered to be a project for the Rockets, as his defensive skills don't quite match his offensive prowess. With the loss of Trevor Ariza, there's a possibility that Edwards could get called up, but he seems destined for a roster spot in the G-League unless he makes some huge strides.

Rockets' De'Anthony Melton: Shines with 26 points in Summer League win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Melton provided 26 points (9-16 FG, 5-10 3Pt, 3-3 FT). 10 rebounds, five assists, two steals and a blocked shot across 32 minutes in Monday's 104-90 win over the Clippers in a Vegas Summer League contest.

Melton delivered what could arguably be the best performance by any player in the Vegas Summer League thus far. His double-double showing had a little bit of everything. 5-of-10 from long range, 10 rebounds, assists, steals and blocked shots were all recorded, leaving many to wonder how this game came from the same player who had two dreadful outings in his first two Summer League games. After missing his sophomore season amid an FBI investigation involving illegal money transactions by a family friend, he took a big risk by going to the draft as a one-and-done player with no recent tape. Only time will tell if he can find a spot on this already -stacked Rockets roster.

Rockets' Isaiah Hartenstein: Out Monday against Clippers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hartenstein has been ruled out of Monday's summer league contest against the Clippers due to bruised right hand, Jonathan Feigen of The Houston Chronicle reports.

The injury is considered minor and the big man should be ready to return to the court for the Rockets next contest. In the meantime, look for Vincent Edwards to slot into the starting lineup Monday night.

Rockets' De'Anthony Melton: Scores 17 in second summer league game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Melton had 17 points (6-12 FG, 2-5 3PT, 3-3 FT) in Sunday's summer league win over the Warriors.

Melton had a disastrous debut in Vegas on Friday, scoring just four points on 2-of-14 shooting, but he bounced back Sunday to help lead the Rockets to a win. Melton did not record an assist, but he added five rebounds and four steals in 23 minutes of action.
