What does Houston's Las Vegas Summer League roster look like?
The Houston Rockets are known for putting together some of the most competitive summer league rosters every year. Their 2015 squad is no different, with incoming draft picks like Sam Dekker and Montrezl Harrell, and contributors to last year's squad, like Clint Capela, ready to roll.
How does the rest of the team look? Here's SB Nation's Rockets blog The Dream Shake with more analysis on every player taking the floor in Las Vegas over the next 10 days, starting with a scouting report on Dekker:
"Some of the things I will be looking for with him is how he fits in the flow of an "NBA" style game, how much of a leadership role does he take, how he looks defensively against quicker competition and how he looks to score the basketball. I also want to see what positions besides the three he will end up playing, I can see him playing some four in a small lineup and stretching the floor, but will the Rockets trust him enough to give him a shot at the two and maybe give James Harden some spell during the season? With his basketball IQ and passing ability he can play high in the league if given the opportunity."
The entire team should be competitive, and as many as five or six players on it could be on Houston's 2015-16 regular season roster.
Dekker is a lock, given that he was selected with the 18th overall pick in the draft and has the skill-set to help right away, but what about everyone else?
