The Rockets have some obvious rookies that are going to make some immediate changes on the roster. What will Tyty Washington do?
The Rockets are going to be defined by their young players in 2022. What's new?
This season is sure to be rocky as the team has moved on from some of its defined starters in favor of a trial by fire approach for some of their up-and-comers.
This is going to lead to some great moments where the young players shine and some dark moments where it seems like the entire season is going to be a waste.
With all of this in mind, it is going to be a key focus for the team to see what they have in their young options even when it makes the rotations change, and TyTy Washington has a chance to really make some changes in Houston.
None of this is to say that Kevin Porter Jr. is in danger of losing his job as the starting point guard, but Daishen Nix may have some competition in the backup role as soon as training camp.
Washington brings a lot to the roster as seen by his excellent performance in the Summer League, and there are some longterm questions for the Rockets and their one for as long as they don't get a deal in place for Porter.
It might be wishful thinking, but perhaps Washington could be an interesting option for the Rockets to pair with Jalen Green if they need the depth in 2022 or if they decide to move on from KPJ for whatever reason.
One way or another, keep a close eye on the young rookie. TyTy Washington might just turn more heads than it seems in a year where young players will make names for themselves.
