Rockets’ coach Mike D’Antoni said that Nene “hasn’t missed a beat” since he ruptured his groin late last season.
Nene is set for a bench role, and he’s fine with that. He just recently turned 35 and the Rockets have him on a plan that they hope will keep him playing for the next four or five years. He’ll back up Clint Capela and continue to be a key cog for the Rockets. His veteran presence should be essential to the playoff success the Rockets hope to have.
