The Houston Rockets have released the roster for the upcoming training camp starting next week.

It’s that time of year again! The Houston Rockets will begin their yearly training camp this Tuesday after a long and interesting offseason. Monday, the team will have their Media Day where we should get some interesting quotes before the camp in Lake Charles, La.

As such, the roster for those attending the training camp was released this morning. The expected names are there, of course, but there are a few that will be looking to prove themselves in camp and in the preseason.

Here’s the full roster:

What to expect from training camp

Training camp should be an interesting time, Rockets fans. We will get to see many things and get quotes from all over the team about how this year is looking.

We can expect to hear about how Carmelo Anthony is transitioning to his new team and whether or not he may be starting this season. We can also expect to hear about how the defense will recover from the losses of not only coach Jeff Bzdelik, but the play of Trevor Ariza and Luc Mbah a Moute as well.

The backup point guard race is also something to watch for this training camp. While Brandon Knight may not be ready to participate, he will be competing with Michael Carter-Williams for that spot this season.

Some of the younger guys will be trying to earn some respect in training camp. Players like Rob Gray and Gary Clark are undrafted guys that will be looking for a two-way spot. Vince Edwards and Bruno Caboclo are guys that will also be looking to make the roster.

Nene might have some competition for his backup center role during training camp. Isaiah Hartenstein and new addition Marquese Chriss fit the role that the Rockets are looking for from that position, so it will be interesting to watch how that battle goes.
