On Friday, the Houston Rockets introduced guard De’Anthony Melton and forward Vincent Edwards, who were selected during Thursday’s NBA Draft. Melton was the 46th overall pick from USC while Edwards was the 52nd overall pick from Purdue.
.@dmorey confirmed that Melton, Edwards, Zhou Qi, and Chinanu Onuaku would be on the #Rockets Summer League roster. Wouldn’t comment on today’s rumored deals with undrafted rookies, since they may not be “official.”— Ben DuBose (@BenDuBose) June 22, 2018
He was asked about Hartenstein but didn’t really answer.
.@dmorey says De’Anthony Melton could be ready to help the #Rockets immediately on defense. Morey referenced the struggles Houston occasionally had this postseason in slowing quicker guards, such as Burks and Exum in the Utah series. pic.twitter.com/yGxp2N6Wyy— Ben DuBose (@BenDuBose) June 22, 2018
