The Houston Rockets use their first pick of the 2017 NBA Draft on German big man Isaiah Hartenstein.
Hartenstein was the MVP of the 2016 Adidas Next Generation Tournament and stands at 7’0 and is slowly filling out his frame at 250 lbs. He’s not a great shooter, but is quick for his frame. At only 19 and standing at 7’1, it’s definitely a long term project for the Rockets and Hartenstein may even stay overseas for another year before being brought in the NBA.
