D-League Rumors

Morey indicated Harrell and Dekker could see time in the NBA Development League as his other recent draft picks, save Chandler Parsons, had before getting playing time with the Rockets. Both are expected to play with the Rockets’ summer league team with Clint Capela and Nick Johnson, last season’s draft picks. “We have a very hard roster to get minutes on with the Rockets,” Morey said. “I think our normal developmental program last year had Capela helping us with minutes at the end of the year. I think if we got Sam or Montrezl helping us at the end of the year, that will be fantastic.”
Jay King: No surprise but Cs don’t sound like they want to use all four of their draft picks. Will look into other options. Austin Ainge: “I don’t think it’s any secret that we have four picks, and it probably wouldn’t be great for us to have four rookies on our team next year. So we are explrong options for guys who would play in the D-League, play in Europe, trades. All of these things are possible with the number of picks we have.”

Darnell Mayberry: Sam Presti when asked directly whether Josh Huestis will be on the roster next year: “He’s someone that we think very highly of. We think he has a future with the team.
