It has been one busy and crazy offseason for the Houston Rockets this year. Did you miss anything? Catch up here!

The Rockets had one of their best offseasons in recent memory this year. They acquired All-Star talent to help out James Harden, bolstered their bench, won some awards and more.

We’ll cover more Summer League a little bit later.
