Isaiah Hartenstein had a decent showing against the Warriors on Sunday, scoring 12 points on 2-of-6 shooting (8-of-9 FTs) with seven rebounds and a block.
Hartenstein spent last season developing in the G-League and was a project that the Rockets are seeing some progress in. He's had some nice engagements defensively and is drawing fouls and converting his freebees at a solid rate. A capable free throw shooting center is something the Rockets have been missing and Chinanu Onuaku has struggled to put together a complete game. Hartenstein may be able to play himself into backup minutes in the regular season if he keeps showing his strides during the Summer League and into the preseason.
