The Houston Rockets selected Maarty Leunen in the 2nd round of the NBA Draft on Thursday Night. Leunen isn’t the most athletic player on the court but he does have nice size at 6’9″, 220 pounds. Leunen played in 127 games (91 starts) at Oregon and he averaged 9.9 points, 7.1 rebounds and 1.8 assists per game. He’s an unselfish player as he did hit 50.3% of his career shots from the floor. Look for minutes to be hard to get for Leunen as a rookie.

2. (33) Joey Dorsey, PF

The Rockets acquired power forward Joey Dorsey in the same trade that they acquired Donte’ Greene in from the Grizzlies. Dorsey is the prototype power forward as his game never ventures far from the paint. He is 6’9″, 265 pounds and he gives an all out effort on both ends of the basketball court. Dorsey played in 149 games (112 starts) at Memphis State and he averaged 6.7 points, 8.1 rebounds, 0.5 assists, 1.1 steals and 1.8 blocked shots per game. Dorsey also shot 61.4% from the floor in college but most of his shots came on putbacks and dunks. Dorsey will likely be able to give the Rockets some quality minutes off of the bench.

The Houston Rockets acquired forward Donte’ Greene in a trade with the Grizzlies. Greene can handle either forward position and he had a great year as a freshman at Syracuse. Greene is 6’11”, 226 pounds and he’s a player. The Rockets were fortunate to get their hands on him as he could be a starter in the NBA as soon as this year. Greene played in 35 games (all starts) at Syracuse and he averaged 17.7 points, 7.2 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.3 steals and 1.6 blocked shots per game. He plays hard on both ends of the basketball court and a lot of teams will be upset that they passed on him down the road.
