    Who is the last useful player on the Rockets that came out of our summer league team?

    Alan Williams made him self into a decent player (he didn’t play for the Rockets but came from our SL squad, gave PHX 2 good seasons), I think injuries derailed him a bit. Greg Smith was good for us.

    I'm interested to see progress from Zhou Qi and Hartenstien and to be able to see Rob Gray play for the last time.

    Rob Gray I think can play is this league as a Shooter. Seth Curry didn't get drafted either.

    I just don't see him being able to defend literally anyone. I think he spends most of his career either in the G league or overseas.

    Donte Greene's over-his-head summer league play led to an outstanding trade for Houston ...at the time. props to NIKEstrad for reminding folks.

    I felt like DMo dominated summer league then had the best season of his career that same season when Dwight went down.

    Alan Williams was probably our best player on that Summer league team. He just got waived a few days ago by Phoenix, but he’s only 25 so I think he might still catch on with someone else. I like his game.

    i'd also say that we could have netted 1st round picks for DMo, Jones and even Royce White coming out of summer league; they were all worth more than their draft position coming out of summer league.

    Part of is we did not have a very good draft pick in a while now.

    Wasn't Capela on a Summerleague team? 2015.
