Houston Rockets Rumors
So far, few franchises, if any, are engaged in serious conversations with the Timberwolves on Butler, sources said. The list of organizations interested in talking further with Minnesota is significant, league sources said: Brooklyn, Detroit, Houston, the LA Clippers, Miami and Philadelphia are among the teams interested in probing for deals.
Bell impressed everybody as he handled the load of helping defend James Harden. Bell earned key minutes as the Warriors went on to a repeat championship and the franchise’s third title in four years that sent Golden State into dynasty status. “Great energy, great speed and athleticism. He’s a good playmaker,” Kerr said. “We’re thrilled with the way he’s played and his future here.”
Q. How does Anthony fit offensively? Daryl Morey: That I think is easy. Two things are happening. Shooting has become more important and he’s always been a plus shooter. With all the switching that happens, people that can score one-on-one in isolation are very important and Carmelo has been one of the best in the league at that. We feel like we have three of the best one-on-one, isolation scorers in the league in Chris (Paul), James (Harden) and Carmelo which is an asset not many teams have.”
In late August, Bzdelik traveled to the University of Florida to speak at a clinic, The Athletic was told. Shortly after, he would join the Rockets in the Bahamas for their week-long mini-camp during the first week of September. Upon leaving the Bahamas, Bzdelik made a pit stop in Colorado to visit family. We spoke on the phone and he told me he would be back in Houston the week of the 17th, and we could meet up again. He sounded full of joy and excitement, and also of anticipation of the new grind. And then, he just retired.
It’s a shocking development, even more so given the timing. And it just doesn’t make much sense. Media Day is Monday, and training camp starts Tuesday at Lake Charles. Multiple league sources told The Athletic that they believe it is the biggest loss for Houston in the offseason, and are suspicious as to what led to such a turn of events.
The sponsorship is a milestone for Bitcoin Cash (BCH), making Houston Rockets the first NBA team in the world to accept sponsorship in BCH.

The partnership announcement comes amid rumors that Bitmain is on the brink of bankruptcy. The company has made a wise choice by sponsoring Houston Rockets, one of the best NBA teams with numerous fans and having won two NBA championships.
