Trevelin Queen Rumors
The Houston Rockets today signed rookie forward KJ Martin along with free agent guards Jerian Grant (JARE-in), Trevelin Queen (TREH-vill-in), and Brodric Thomas. Martin (6-6, 215) was the 52nd overall pick by Sacramento in the 2020 NBA Draft. The Rockets acquired his rights on November 25. Martin spent last season with IMG Academy’s post-graduate team and averaged 19.6 points and 8.3 rebounds while shooting 69.1% from inside-the-arc. The 19-year-old is the son of Kenyon Martin, who was the first overall pick in the 2000 NBA Draft
Bryan Kalbrosky: After signing Mason Jones and Trevelin Queen, the Rockets easily have two of the best undrafted free agents. Both of these players have worked incredibly hard to get where they are and will only continue to improve. bit.ly/2XBlpoR #NBADraft (@masonjones2 + @trev_up)
Bryan Kalbrosky: New Mexico State’s Trevelin Queen has been selected as a @ProBBallCombine honoree, per source. The PBC is a great resource for those not in the NBA Combine. They provide tons of intel for pro teams, too. My profile on @NMStateMBB star @trev_up: https://t.co/zA1eQt6Z0Q #AggieUp

Trevelin Queen: My sophomore year of high school, I got moved up to varsity basketball for the last playoff game. Then, I moved to Florida as a junior but I didn’t get to play because I transferred too late. So I missed a whole year. I came back to my old high school as a senior in Maryland. We had a new coach. But then I played only nine games under him. I continued to work out in the summer. I didn’t have any real offers so I went to play at the community college where my AAU coach was coaching. I got a little better out there. Then I went out to California, where I was in the third-richest county in America, Marin. It was like, a burger and fries were $20. I can’t afford that. That was a struggle. I ended up going to military school. Lord knows how I ended up there. My uncle emphasized it. But it turned out it was a good school for education and for basketball.
