    The Rockets and Thunder officially completed their blockbuster trade of Chris Paul, first round picks in 2024 and 2026, and pick swaps in 2021 and 2025 for Russell Westbrook on Tuesday.

    Westbrook and Harden and now officially reunited and will be performing massive pre-game routines at the Toyota Center. Meanwhile, the Thunder officially have Chris Paul on the roster and are free to move him if they choose. Watching how Sam Presti begins this rebuild process will be interesting, to say the least.

    Isaiah Hartenstein and the Houston Rockets have agreed to push back the date to guarantee his deal for 2019-2020 season.

    This move will afford the Rockets more flexibility as they look to round out the rest of their roster. Harenstein figures to see decent minutes as a backup Center this season, even with the addition of Tyson Chandler.

  • Chris Clemons
    PG, Houston Rockets

    Chris Clemons was the difference maker for the Rockets in Saturday's 105-96 win against the Nuggets, posting a double-double with 20 points, 10 rebounds, three assists and a steal.

    Clemons' Cinderella summer season continues to chug along as he again got the start at PG for the Rockets. The undersized guard has impressed all summer for his team and added a surprising 10 rebounds in tonight's win. Before the trade for Russell Westbrook, Clemons had a legitimate chance to make the final roster cut but the Rockets' backcourt is just too crowded for him unless he is able to beat out fellow Summer League star Chris Chiozza. This will be a tough call for Houston.

  • Deng Adel

    Deng Adel scored 20 points in Saturday’s win adding seven assists, one steal and one block.

    The Rockets have been spoiled in Summer League play with several breakout players chipping in every game. Add Deng Adel to that list as tonight’s 20-point outing will put him on the radar. Adel is unlikely to make the final roster but games like these may create future opportunities for the second-year player.

  • Anthony Bennett

    The Rockets have signed former first overall draft pick Anthony Bennett to a non-guaranteed deal.

    They are adding him to their training camp roster to see what he's got. He's been playing the last few seasons in the G-League for Agua Caliente. Bennet is still a long-shot to make the regular season roster and the Rockets are just kicking some tires to see what's there.

  • Tyson Chandler
    C, Houston Rockets

    Tyson Chandler signed a one-year deal with the Rockets on Friday.

    Chandler will theoretically provide some veteran leadership and stability to the second unit as a rebounder and defender. There's nothing to see here for fantasy purposes as it's just hard to see him playing enough minutes to matter.

  • Tyson Chandler
    C, Los Angeles Lakers

    The Rockets remain interested in adding Tyson Chandler, per Sam Amick of The Athletic.

    Chandler was rumored to be a Houston target last week and the Rockets remain in the market for a backup center. He'd certainly give them a rebounding presence but it's unlikely that Chandler would be counted on for serious minutes. That's true of pretty much anywhere he lands.

  • Andre Iguodala
    SF, Memphis Grizzlies

    In the wake of Thursday's blockbuster trade, Sam Amick is reporting that the Rockets' top priority is now working out a deal for Andre Iguodala.

    Amick mentions the Clippers as other serious suitors, and earlier reports had the Lakers and Mavs very interested in Iguodala. The veteran is in high demand and will certainly land on a contender. He's the perfect wing presence that can help push a team over the top, and it looks like the Grizzlies will be able to get some more assets rather than settle for a buyout with the way the market has shaped up.

  • Gary Clark
    PF, Houston Rockets

    Gary Clark put up 13 points, four steals and three 3-pointers in Thursday's 87-92 loss to the Thunder.

    Clark briefly surfaced as a rotation option for Houston last season but faded to the background as his shot faltered. In 51 games he shot .331 overall and .331 from deep, and if Clark wants to stick in Houston he'll need to establish himself as someone that can knock down the corner triple. His 3-of-9 mark tonight is a step in the right direction, and that's now seven threes in his last two Summer League contests.

  • Russell Westbrook
    PG, Houston Rockets

    According to Adrian Wojnarowski, the Thunder have traded Russell Westbrook to the Rockets in exchange for Chris Paul, first-round picks in 2024 and 2026 and pick swaps in 2021 and 2025.

    What a bombshell on a Thursday night. For all the talk about Westbrook to the Heat, we've ended up with the reuniting of Westbrook and James Harden. Paul will again become the main ballhandler in Oklahoma City and Westbrook and Harden can fight over who gets to chuck up more shots.

  • Isaiah Hartenstein

    Isaiah Hartenstein (sprained right ankle) expects to be ready for training camp as of Thursday's reports.

    There's some optimism from Hartenstein that the recovery should not be a huge process and he should be ready to go for the season in which he could be the backup to Clint Capela

    Isaiah Hartenstein is out for the remainder of Summer League after leaving in a wheelchair with an MRI planned for what looks like a sprained ankle.

    It obviously sounds worse than a typical sprain, so let's hope it's nothing worse. Hartenstein should have plenty of time to recover by training camp and he may be Clint Capela's backup this season.

  • Gary Clark

    Gary Clark went for a game-high 24 points (9-for-22 FGs, 2-for-4 FTs) in 30 minutes in a 94-92 Summer League victory over the Kings on Tuesday.

    Clark also had four treys, eight rebounds, two steals and a block tonight. He's not on the standard league radar at this point, but he should see an uptick from his 12.6 minutes per game in his rookie season.

  • Isaiah Hartenstein
    PF, Houston Rockets

    Isaiah Hartenstein was helped off the floor while not putting any weight on his right foot after a bad fall on Tuesday night in Summer League.

    Hartenstein had six points, seven rebounds, two steals and a block in 16 minutes prior to the injury. We hope it's nothing major, but that could be the end of his impressive Summer League action.

    Isaiah Hartenstein put up 22 points on 7-of-13 shooting with six rebounds in a loss to the Blazers on Sunday.

    Hartenstein appeared in 28 games for the Rockets last season and averaged 1.9 points in 7.9 minutes per game. He will likely retain a similar role to the one he had last season. Chris Clemons was the primary scorer aside from Hartenstein as he put up 19 points on 4-of-13 shooting with four steals.
