    2015 Summer League

    Figured I'd get a thread going again this year. Our roster as of now is:
    G Will Cummings, Temple
    G Denzel Livingston, Incarnate Word
    F Christian Wood, UNLV
    G Glen Rice Jr., Rio Grande Vipers
    G Jaron Johnson, Rio Grande Vipers
    F Sam Dekker
    F Montrezl Harrell
    F Clint Capela
    G Nick Johnson
    We also have a few players coming in for tryouts for the team:
    F Chris Walker, Florida
    G Deangelo Harrison, St. John;s
    F JJ Avilla, Colorado St
    G Jarvis Threat, Rio Grande Vipers

    We play the DLeague select on 7/10 at 9:00. Phoenix on 7/12 at 3:30 and Toronto on 7/13 at 9:00 (all times CT). I'm not sure, but it should be on Root Sports or if you really want to go crazy, you can get a Summer League Broadband Pass for $15 and watch it online.

    Obviously I'm excited to see our drafted guys play and to see how Capela and Johnson improve as both could be playing vital roles if they've improved in areas. I also think Glen Rice, Christian Wood and Deangelo Harrison have a shot to make the team, so I'd like to see how they do. I don't know much about the rest. Chris Walker is supposed to be a freak athlete so that could be fun and Will Cummings was a solid college PG but can't shoot.

    Summer league is actually really fun. I'm excited about seeing what the rookies can do, as well.

    I've read some great things about Nick Johnson. Apparently the Rockets think he can be a defensive stopper in the future.

    If he can get his 3 point shot up to around 35% or higher, paired with his athletic ability and defense he can be a very good starting PG

    I don't know about being a starting PG, but I really hope we keep him on the roster to see what we have in him.

    Add Oklahoma State forward Le'Bryan Nash to the roster. 17 and 5 rebounds in his last season as a senior. He seems mature, athletic and a good defender, but can't really shoot from outside. He is a good mid-range shooter, though, so he can develop a decent shot.

    He was also a top 20 All American recruit after High School. Comparisions to Ron Artest.

    I always thought of Nash as one of those tweeners that isn't quick enough or a good enough shooter for the 3 but not big or strong enough for the 4

    Being a good mid-range shooter, I think he can develop a decent three-point shot. It will take time, so it's kind of moot. He isn't making the roster.

    The Rockets dropped the game against the Sizers and finished the LVSL only 2-3, but Harrell was a monster in this game.

    24 points, 12 rebounds and those:
