After a draft where Nick Johnson and Clint Capela were both selected, and then a few months of training in the D-League, now both guys are helping the Rockets contend for a title. The NBA Combine has helped or hurt many players in the past and this year will be no different.
Over the last few weeks we have detailed certain possible Houston Rockets prospects and what better time to do an update on the field than the 2015 NBA Combine! Over the last two days (May 14th-15th) a majority of the big names that will enter this year’s NBA Draft have taken measurables, shown their agility and even ran a little 5-on-5 in Chicago.
- Justise Winslow (SF, Duke)
- Zhou Qi (C, China)
- Kris Dunn (PG, Providence)
- Kelly Oubre, Jr. (SF, Kansas)
- Delon Wright (PG, Utah)
- Andrew Harrison (PG, Kentucky)
- Myles Turner (C, Texas)
- D’Angelo Harrison (PG, St. John’s)
Only 5 of the 8 made it to the combine this week, while 3 others couldn’t or didn’t attend. The Rockets will have the #18 pick in the first-round of the 2015 NBA Draft and one of these guys could be a difference maker next season.
