Houston Rockets initially signed Ryan Anderson and Eric Gordon though the biggest news of the off season may have been the extension of James Harden‘s contract.

Looking back to July 1st, SCS serves up the most intriguing tweets and social media activity of free agency and the off season:

Eric Gordon's known James Harden since high school. "Chemistry-wise we'll all fit in." #Rockets

Hardens assist per game are gonna rise with true shooters like Ryan Anderson and Eric Gordon on our team. Perfect for Dantoni's system.

Yes, Pablo Prigioni is even older than Jason Terry — but his game is more diversified. A pure shooter with a fading shot doesn't age well.

Jason Terry just confirmed to us on @SiriusXMNBA he was notified by the Rockets a few days ago he will not be brought back to Houston.
