Notably Sam Dekker put on a solid performance while K.J. McDaniels and Montrezl Harrell  both produced consistent outings.

Looking back here’s the most intriguing tweets and social media activity from the Houston Rockets NBA Summer League.

I'm sure he'll spend as much time as possible with RGV. He's 19. The Development League would be a place to develop. https://t.co/sbESl4H0he

Payton II, Wiltjer, Taylor can still sign two-year deals. At this point, order unimportant as it was with Onuaku. https://t.co/hCDhqUbQoz

Zhou Qi with the soft roll on the basket for 2. Bring him over now! Pay anything!

Rockets fans should tune in to the USA China exhibition. Second round draft pick Zhou Qi is getting some run.

— The Dream Shake (@DreamShakeSBN) July 25, 2016

Final thought on Zhou Qi: Rockets should put an NBA-level conditioning coach in Shanghai now to save them a year or two in Houston.

— The Dream Shake (@DreamShakeSBN) July 25, 2016

Thoughts on Zhou Qi: Rockets lose nothing with him staying in China for another year. Body isn't ready for the NBA at 7'2" 220.

— The Dream Shake (@DreamShakeSBN) July 25, 2016

Thoughts on Zhou Qi: Impossible to know what he will be. Far too thin to match up with NBA bigs. Defensively, he was overpowered by USA.

Zhou Qi high scorer vs team USA tonight #toughopponent
