The Rockets have made another addition to their Training Camp roster.

It is officially day 2 of Training Camp, and the Rockets are making some moves, including one involving George de Paula. First off though, the team has cut forward/center Shawn Long. His deal was about to become guaranteed and every dollar counts when pursuing better players and assets. Best of luck to you, Shawn!

Also, the Rockets have signed George de Paula to take the 20th spot on the roster. This deal is a Training Camp one and according to Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle, he may see G-League time after this stint.

George de Paula

De Paula saw some playing time during the Summer League for the Rockets. He was signed to a deal to play for the team then and impressed the Rockets enough for them to invite him to Training Camp.

Zhou Qi has especially impressed according to Mike D’Antoni. He certainly had some nice words to say about the Chinese standout:
