Houston Rockets: Space City Scoop Seeks To Add New Writers To Our Amazing Team

Like the Houston Rockets and want to share your opinion? Space City Scoop seeks to add to our talented team of writers.

Space City Scoop has held a steady place as FanSided’s home for Houston Rockets coverage for some time now, dating back to when the site was first launched in 2011. The Rockets have seen plenty of changes to their roster in that time frame and so too has the staff here on site. There’s a lot of history here, both with the team and with our efforts to write about them.

Despite the changes, there has always been one constant here on site with regards to our goals: To give you folks, our readers, the very best Rockets discussion that we possibly can.

Consider yourself a passionate fan? Read us or other Rockets sites with regularity and ever wonder if you should write about the team too? Maybe you’re just stumbling across us for the first time and you like what you see. We are looking to add to our staff here on site and this could be your chance to join the team and take your shot.


We like to let our staff write about the aspects of the team they are most passionate about. There’s room for those interested in covering the Rio Grande Valley Vipers the Rockets’ D-League affiliate. Maybe you’re more of a transaction junkie and you want to talk about the impact a new signing could have. Or maybe you just want to chip in on game previews, recaps, or any number of other potential story ideas that could relate to the team. We’d love to add a social media specialist and writers who want to post on daily happenings “quick hits” to keep Clutch City fans aware of what’s happening up to the minute.

Writers are asked to contribute a minimum of 1-2 posts per week. We’ll always welcome more frequent contributions than that, but we won’t require it.

We know that for most this is primarily a hobby and something you do for the love of it. That’s why we do it too. Most of us have families, full-time careers, and/or school to balance into our lives as well (there’s room for things besides basketball, right?) This is an opportunity to join a staff of writers here who are just simply passionate about the Rockets and want to continue to reach the rest of this great fan base.

We’ll be in touch from there.
