Shooting guard/small forward Brad Newley has been an outstanding player and it’s not known if he will move to the United States to play for the Rockets. If he does, the Rockets could have a steal here. Newley is 6′6″, 195 pounds and he’s a great all around basketball player. He has played in 149 games in Australia and he averaged 19.8 points, 4.6 rebounds, 2.7 assists, 1.0 steal and 0.8 blocks per game. He also is a solid shooter as he’s hit 45.8% from the floor, 36.6% from three point range and 74.4% from the free throw line. This was a low risk/high reward draft pick for the Rockets.
