Default Rockets sign Kelenna Azubuike

http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/sports/4093884.html

Quote:
With their summer remodeling largely complete, the Rockets began filling out their roster for training camp Thursday, reaching an agreement with guard Kelenna Azubuike on a non-guaranteed contract.

The 6-5 Azubuike was impressive with Denver's summer league team in Las Vegas, making 57.9 percent of his shots while averaging 16.4 points. He averaged 23 points and seven rebounds in the last two games.

Azubuike averaged 12.6 points on 50.8 percent shooting, and 30.6 percent 3-point shooting, with the Fort Worth Flyers of the NBA Development League last season.

I guess this means there's gotta be a trade in the works, because this puts the roster at 15 players and we really need a backup big man. Hopefully Juwan is being shipped for something worthwhile.

EDIT: God damn please change the fu(king forum color scheme before my eyes melt. Sh!t!!!

its true you guys gotta win now, but its nice to have some rooks on the back end of your bench, I think they are looking in for a 4 through trade.

We signed the guy to a non-guaranteed contract. He'll prolly be waived before training camp ends, almost definitly before the end of pre-season. There is always a chance he'll be part of a trade, but that would mean we've also got to let some oen else go, too.

I have seen him play live back when Kentucky played the Gators. He is very talented and an excelent defender. He could be a good addition.

Thats pretty much what all teams do and expect their team to get better that way. It doesnt matter unless the player improves by himself to make the team better too.

Hes not even oging to make the roster . Just a practice dummie, if he becomes a 5 min per game player, its a bonus.
