The Houston Rockets' D-League affiliate Rio Grande Valley Vipers have announced their training camp roster that they'll evaluate for their 2015 tipoff on Friday, November 13th. From the press release:
This year's roster is comprised of seventeen players - four returners, four affiliate players, six players acquired during the 2015 NBA Development League Draft and three tryout invitees.
This season's training camp marks the first time that the Vipers will practice in the new City of Edinburg Wellness Center. The 84,000 square-foot facility, located in Edinburg, Texas, is the new practice home of the Vipers. The team's section of the facility measures 24,000 square-feet and features two NBA practice courts, locker rooms, a weight room, a conference room and offices for the Vipers basketball operations staff. The construction of the facility is the first step in the team's move to Edinburg. The Vipers are also building the 8,500-seat Bert Ogden Arena in Edinburg. Upon completion, Bert Ogden Arena will be the largest indoor entertainment venue in South Texas.
Moving on up! Edinburg will have a nice little arena for the Vipers once it's finished. High quality NBA franchises tend to have high quality D-League programs.
