The Houston Rockets picked Isaiah Canaan in the 2nd round of the 2013 NBA Draft

Blogged under Big Rockets News,Bloglockers,Comings & Goings,Front Page,General,The Draft Report by joelapinski on Friday 28 June 2013 at 6:35 pm

The Houston Rockets picked 22-year old PG/SG Isaiah Canaan out of Murray State with the #34 overall pick (2nd round) of the 2013 NBA Draft.  Canaan is 6’1″, 195 pounds.  He played in 31 games for Murray State last year and he averaged 36.5 minutes, 21.8 points, 3.5 rebounds, 4.3 assists and 1.5 steals per game.  Canaan played in 132 games in his four years in college and he averaged 29.4 minutes, 15.5 points, 2.8 rebounds, 2.9 assists and 1.2 steals per game.  Canaan shot 45% from the floor, 41.9% from three point range and 80.3% from the free throw line in college.  This was an outstanding pick for the Rockets as Canaan should have been picked at the bottom end of the first round.

The Houston Rockets made a big mistake in the 2006 NBA Draft

Blogged under Blast from the Past,Bloglockers,Front Page,General,The Draft Report by joelapinski on Thursday 27 June 2013 at 12:56 pm

The Rockets made a great pick in the 2006 NBA Draft, when they selected shooting guard Rudy Gay with the #8 overall pick.  Then the big mistake came as they dealt Gay along with forward Stromile Swift to the Vancouver Grizzlies for SG/SF Shane Battier.  Battier played in 348 games (340 starts) in his five years with the Rockets and he averaged 34.2 minutes, 8.8 points, 4.7 rebounds and 2.3 assists per game.  Battier is still #5 in Rockets’ history in three pointers made (576).  Battier was a decent player for the Rockets, but Rudy Gay is one of the better SG/SF in the NBA right now.

The Houston Rockets only have one pick in next week’s NBA Draft

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,The Draft Report by joelapinski on Thursday 20 June 2013 at 4:36 pm

The Rockets only have one pick in next week’s NBA Draft and it’s a second rounder.  I think they will take the best player available if they stand pat at #34.  With that in mind, in my mock draft on bloglockers.com, I have the Rockets picking small forward Adonis Thomas out of Memphis.  Thomas would be a good addition to the Rockets as he is another athletic player that can get up and down the court.

The Houston Rockets take Terrence Jones in the first round

Blogged under Big Rockets News,Bloglockers,Comings & Goings,Front Page,General,The Draft Report by alleyoop on Thursday 28 June 2012 at 9:19 pm

The Houston Rockets have taken 20-year old PF Terrence Jones out of Kentucky with the 18th overall pick of the 2012 NBA Draft. Jones is 6’9″, 252 pounds. He played in 38 games for Kentucky last year and he averaged 29.3 minutes, 12.3 points, 7.2 rebounds, 1.3 assists, 1.3 steals and 1.8 blocked shots per game. Jones played in 76 games in his two years with the Wildcats and he averaged 30.4 minutes, 14.0 points, 8.0 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 1.2 steals and 1.8 blocked shots per game. This was a good pick for the Rockets as Jones is solid at both ends of the basketball court.

The Houston Rockets picked forward Royce White in the 1st round

Blogged under Big Rockets News,Bloglockers,Comings & Goings,Front Page,General,The Draft Report by alleyoop on Thursday 28 June 2012 at 9:15 pm

The Houston Rockets picked 21-year old power forward Royce White out of Iowa State with the 16th overall pick of the 2012 NBA Draft. White is 6’8″, 270 pounds. White played in 34 games at Iowa State last year (his only one in college) and he averaged 31.5 minutes, 13.4 points, 9.3 rebounds, 5.0 assists and 1.2 steals per game. White shot 53.4% from the floor but only 49.8% from the free throw line last year, so he has some things to work on. That being said, he also has a huge upside.

The Houston Rockets select SG Jeremy Lamb in the first round

Blogged under Big Rockets News,Bloglockers,Comings & Goings,Front Page,General,The Draft Report by alleyoop on Thursday 28 June 2012 at 9:12 pm

The Houston Rockets have selected 20-year old shooting guard Jeremy Lamb out of Connecticut with the 12th overall pick of the 2012 NBA Draft. Lamb is 6’5″, 180 pounds. Lamb played in 34 games for the Huskies last year and he averaged 37.2 minutes, 17.7 points, 4.9 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 1.2 steals per game. He played in 75 games in his two years at Connecticut and he averaged 32.1 minutes, 14.1 points, 4.7 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 1.0 steal per game. Lamb is likely going to push Kevin Martin for the starting shooting guard spot in 2012-13.

UPDATE: (10/29/2012) – The Rockets have dealt Jeremy Lamb to the Oklahoma City Thunder as part of the James Harden deal.

The Houston Rockets are going to make a big splash in the NBA Draft

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,The Draft Report by alleyoop on Friday 15 June 2012 at 1:27 pm

The Houston Rockets are armed with the #14 and #16 picks in this month’s NBA Draft. I think they are going to get two really good players as this draft is deeper than it has been as of late. In my mock draft found on bloglockers.com, I have the Rockets taking SG Austin Rivers out of Duke with the 14th overall pick. I have the Rockets taking power forward John Henson out of North Carolina with the 16th overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft. This would be a great haul for the Rockets.

The Houston Rockets acquire Chandler Parsons from the Timberwolves

Blogged under Big Rockets News,Bloglockers,Comings & Goings,Front Page,General,The Draft Report by alleyoop on Saturday 25 June 2011 at 8:22 am

The Rockets picked 22-year old, 6’10”, 215 pound power forward Chandler Parsons with the #38 overall pick. They then traded him to the Timberwolves as part of the Jonny Flynn deal. The Rockets then sent cash to the Timberwolves to send Parsons back to the Rockets. Parsons played in 36 games for the Florida Gators last year and he averaged 34.1 minutes, 11.3 points, 7.8 rebounds and 3.8 assists per game. He played in 4 years in college and he averaged 27.9 minutes, 10.2 points, 6.0 rebounds and 2.4 assists per game. Parsons gives the Rockets another big body to help up front.

The Houston Rockets acquired Donatas Motiejunas from the T-Wolves

Blogged under Big Rockets News,Bloglockers,Comings & Goings,Front Page,General,The Draft Report by alleyoop on Saturday 25 June 2011 at 8:19 am

The Rockets acquired 20-year old, 7’0″, 222 pound power forward Donatas Motiejunas who was playing in Italy, as part of the Jonny Flynn deal with the Timberwolves. Motiejunas was taken by the Timberwolves with the #20 overall pick. Motiejunas played in 46 games for two teams last year in Europe and he averaged 26.3 minutes, 12.3 points, 4.8 rebounds, 1.0 assist and 1.6 steals per game. He has played in 148 games in four years in Europe and he averaged 23.7 minutes, 12.2 points, 4.8 rebounds, 0.9 assists and 1.4 steals per game. If Motiejunas stays motivated (and I think Kevin McHale will be able to), then the Rockets will have a nice player.

The Houston Rockets drafted Marcus Morris in the first round of the 2011 NBA Draft

Blogged under Big Rockets News,Bloglockers,Comings & Goings,Front Page,General,The Draft Report by alleyoop on Saturday 25 June 2011 at 8:06 am

The Houston Rockets picked 21-year old, 6’9″, 235 pound forward Marcus Morris with the 14th pick of the 2011 NBA Draft. Morris was picked just seven minutes after his twin brother (Markieff) was picked by the Phoenix Suns. The significance of the 7 minutes is that it is also the amount of time that was between the Morris brothers when they were born. Morris played in 38 games last year for Kansas and he averaged 28.3 minutes, 17.2 points, 7.6 rebounds and 1.6 assists per game. Morris played in 109 games in three years in college and he averaged 24.0 minutes, 12.6 points, 6.2 rebounds and 1.3 assists per game. The Rockets probably will use Morris at small forward where he will challenge Chase Budinger for P.T.
