The Rockets selected Louisville center Chinanu Onuaku with the No. 37 pick in the 2016 NBA Draft.
Onuaku is undersized at 6’10/245 but he has a nice 7’3″ wingspan and is a mostly raw prospect. He can pass the ball a little bit and he sets good screens, with the ability to roll to the basket and finish above and around the rim. His decision-making is suspect and he’s not overly athletic, but he has a puncher’s chance at developing into a serviceable NBA big man. He would need a big preseason to garner any fantasy attention even with the Rockets resetting at the center position.
