    I'll reiterate Quinn Cook and add Michael Frazier II. Very Troy Daniels like and would be a good body to have for Summer League.
    I think Quinn could be a very serviceable player for years. I honestly can't see why he wasn't drafted.

    ^^^^Yes, even though the NBA is muchhh better scouting players than it was 10-15 years ago. Cook and Frazier bring something of value to the table. Boatwright out of UCONN also. Only 5-11 but is extremely quick.

    I know that in addition to his well documented drug history, Robert Upshaw got flagged with a possible heart condition at the draft combine - but I can't believe NOBODY drafted him. The Lakers have already added him to their Summer League roster. I wish the Rockets could have snagged him for the Vipers. I like his shot blocking.

    Dude got his money. Now he's got a chance to develop on an NBA roster. Good for him. Has NBA level 3&D skills. Just needs to hone them and get his shot.

    Reddit just reminded me of Justin Dentmon. Watched a ton of his games 2 years ago or so, would be perfect PG fit for the Rockets. He averaged 1,4 points per possession this summer league too.

    He could be a decent pick-up as a third-string guard for some teams, but not the Rockets. With the acquisition of Ty Lawson our perimeter defense is bad as it is, we can't sign someone like Dentmon who'd get torched on the defensive end as well.

    That is crazy. Unless you plan to play Harden, Dentmon, Lawson, Jones, Terry lineup. A point guard who can shoot 3s. This guy is a Canaan with Daniels 3pt touch.

    This dude has been lighting up the d-league for about a month now. He's not all the way back. Still favoring the injured leg. But he's looking like a legit NBA pg. Got plenty of bounce, athleticism, is passing well, has a nice slick move and looks good in mid-range. 3-ball still needs more work but he's working on it and he's a worker. Defense is NBA ready.

    I like this kid more and more. Memphis looks to be signing him to an NBA deal. I would've liked to have this kid around on a non-guaranteed deal for next season. I think if he gets right physically that he could make a breakout at the NBA level. Reminds me some of Denis Schroder with his frame and moves. I'm convinced he's an NBA player and could possibly turn into a true steal.
