After joining the Houston Rockets, big man Usman Garuba hopes to that his role on the court will be bigger and more significant than the one he had with Real Madrid. “Having the ball in my hands more time and those kinds of things that I could not do in Madrid, where I have had to adapt to a role due to the type of players there are [on Real Madrid]. In general to be able to do more and more things.” Garuba said in an interview with Marca when asked what will he’ll be looking to improve in his rookie season in the NBA.
The Rockets will determine how many games, if any, Garuba will play after he arrives and has a chance to go through some workouts and meetings with team management, another individual familiar with the team’s plans said. It has not yet been determined if he will play though it would seem unlikely that he would participate in the Rockets’ third game, Thursday against the Toronto Raptors.
