    per Jonathan feigen

    They hope to use part of the mle to bring him over long term.

    Regardless, they are definitely bringing him over next season. I guess they see some potential there.

    Vipers are excited about this addition.

    But otherwise, Zhou who?

    He is a super scrawny 7 foot player with range. We need to put him through Dream's BBQ program.

    They need to put him on the same workout plan as Capela.

    I think his future is as a wing. He'll never be a big man, not even in today's league of perimeter oriented big men. UNLESS science advances to the point where we can just do some sort of surgery to widen his body. Then at that point we could start the strength training to make him a productive big man.

    Outside of that, I see him as a SF who spots up for 3s.

    I don't expect him to become a bruiser, but I do expect him to bulk up considerably to sustain the rigors of the NBA.

    say, doesn't that make Jarrod Uthoff obsolete?

    This has been know for a month now. Thanks for reporting it as official.

    It's been reported on the net that he would be with Houston 2017/18 season....playing with summer league
    team. New CBA two-way contracts help him move between D-League and Rockets. Train with strength
    and conditioning staff.

    If they willing to use part of the MLE then they expect lots of china money or they see potential.

    I see him as a 4 with a chance to play so 3 or 5 depending on matchup.

    No they rolling the dice on both. Low risk since I doubt the contracts will be super high/

    Can't remember which writer tweeted yesterday that Morey would recall the "Rockets diaspora", but God that was brilliantly put. Time to put up the bat signal, summon our guys home.

    Well they're really in the Win now mode. I really don't think they'll be playing rookies much. CP3 is on a 1 year contract so it's either championship and bust...
