Tomorrow is the first day of Training Camp and the Rockets have officially announced their 20-man roster. Let’s take a look!
First off, happy Media Day (and Training Camp soon) to you, Red Nation! Today is an exciting one as we begin to approach the 2017-18 NBA season. It is fast approaching with the first preseason game happening in just a week and a day away on the 3rd of October!
With that said, let’s get to the new information. The Rockets have released their official Training Camp roster. While the names are all fairly familiar and the roster probably could have been guessed, it is still nice to see in writing.
We’ll start with the guards.
Tim Quarterman (Guard/Forward)
Chris Johnson (Guard/Forward)
This is a fine list that includes the recently signed Chris Johnson. Tim Quarterman is also included as he made it all the way to Training Camp after being signed as a trade piece.
Now onto the forwards
Tarik Black (Forward/Center)
Zhou Qi (Forward/Center)
Chinanu Onuaku (Forward/Center)
Shawn Long (Forward/Center)
Like Quarterman, Shawn Long also found his way onto the Training Camp roster after being signed as a trade piece. The rest were fairly predictable.
Lastly, the centers.
These two are the only true-centers on the Rockets. While Nene has played power forward for teams in the past, it is clear that he is only a center in Houston.
What do you guys think of the Training Camp roster? Who do you think will make the final 15? Let us know in the comments below or on Twitter and Facebook! Be sure to stay tuned for all the Media Day coverage here on Space City Scoop!
