The Houston Rockets selected 20-year old center Zhou Qi out of China with the #43 overall pick (2nd round) of the 2016 NBA Draft. He is 7’2″, 218 pounds. Qi played in 42 games (40 starts) in China last year and he averaged 34.2 minutes, 15.8 points, 9.8 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 1.1 steals and 3.2 blocked shots per game. He has now played in 73 games (60 starts) in his first two years in China and he is averaging 32.1 minutes, 15.1 points, 8.6 rebounds, 1.2 assists, 1.0 steal and 3.2 blocked shots per game. If you are going to draft and stash a player in the second round of the NBA Draft…..why not a 7 footer? I like this pick for the Rockets.
