The Houston Rockets trade Patrick Ewing Jr. to the Knicks

Blogged under Big Rockets News, Bloglockers, Comings & Goings, Front Page, General by alleyoop on Saturday 30 August 2008 at 11:55 am

The Rockets have traded Patrick Ewing Jr. to the Knicks for the draft rights to center Frederic Weis. Weis was the 15th pick in the first round of the NBA Draft in 1999. He played in France last season and he averaged 14.7 minutes, 2.0 points, 3.9 rebounds and 0.3 assists per game. This just proved that the Rockets didn’t think much of Ewing Jr. as Weis will likely never play for them.

The Houston Rockets acquire D.J. Strawberry from the Suns

Blogged under Big Rockets News, Bloglockers, Comings & Goings, Front Page, General by alleyoop on Wednesday 27 August 2008 at 9:42 pm

The Rockets have acquired 2nd year guard D.J. Strawberry from the Suns for rookie guard Sean Singletary. Strawberry did not have a good rookie year for the Suns. He played in 33 games (0 starts) in his rookie season and he averaged 8.2 minutes, 2.2 points, 0.8 rebounds and 0.9 assists per game. Strawberry also didn’t shoot too well last season as he only hit 31.5% of his shots from the floor and 47.4% of his shots from the free throw line. This seems to be a trade that was just made for the sake of making one as neither of these players have much of an upside.

The Houston Rockets also acquire Sean Singletary and Patrick Ewing Jr. from the Kings

Blogged under Big Rockets News, Bloglockers, Comings & Goings, Front Page, General by alleyoop on Thursday 14 August 2008 at 10:41 pm

The Rockets have also acquired rookies Sean Singletary and Patrick Ewing Jr. from the Kings in the Ron Artest deal just sweetening the pot more. Both were 2nd round picks this June (#42, #43). Singletary is a combo guard who can handle either position. He played in 123 games (all starts) at Virginia and he averaged 16.9 points, 4.0 rebounds, 4.8 assists and 1.6 steals per game. The Rockets like him and think that he can help them down the road. Patrick Ewing Jr. is nowhere near the player his papa was. Ewing played in 127 games (26 starts) in his career at Georgetown and Indiana and he averaged 4.3 points, 3.3 rebounds and 1.0 assist per game. Don’t look for Ewing to get off of the bench much in Houston if he even makes the team. Still, it was good to get a couple of young players in addition to Ron Artest from the Kings.

The Houston Rockets trade forward Steve Novak to the Clippers

Blogged under Bloglockers, Comings & Goings, Front Page, General by alleyoop on Thursday 7 August 2008 at 10:35 am

The Rockets have traded reserve forward Steve Novak to the Clippers. In return, the Rockets have the option to switch 2011 2nd round picks with the Clippers. That seems likely to happen based on the histories of these two teams and it’s fair value for Novak. Novak played in 70 games (1 start) in his career in Houston and he averaged 6.5 minutes, 2.7 points, 0.9 rebounds and 0.2 assists per game. His best skill was his long range shooting as he shot 42.7% from behind the three point line. This trade also takes his salary off the books which is a good thing with Ron Artest’s big salary coming on board soon.
