Chinese center Zhou Qi was selected by the Rockets with the No. 43 pick in the 2016 NBA Draft.
Qi will stay in China for one more season so we’ll have to wait and see if his size and length translate in the NBA. He’s less Yao Ming in terms of his game and more like the prototypical rim-running bigs we’re seeing a lot of these days. He needs to bulk up before he can handle the rigors of the NBA.
