Other teams

It’s also fun to see who some of the other teams around the league will be throwing out onto their Summer League squads. While the Rockets aren’t going to be playing anyone in the four-game regular season that had a top-ten pick this year, there are still some exciting young players to watch.

The Mavericks have the brother of NBA MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo, Kostas, on their roster this year. He was the No. 60 pick of last year’s draft and will likely get some attention with his last name.

The Trail Blazers will have Nassir Little, who fell a bit in this year’s draft. He’ll look to prove that he should’ve been selected earlier.

The Kings will have Kyle Guy on their roster, who was great in the NCAA Tournament this season on his way to a National Championship. He was a second-round selection by Sacramento this year.

The Jazz have rookie Justin Wright-Forman, who has looked good so far in the Summer League over in Utah.

Next. Rockets should sign JaMychal Green

Overall, there’s some exciting talent coming to Las Vegas for the Summer League this year. The Rockets will have a great squad of their own as they look to take home the championship and develop some players.
