The Rockets’ young core has been one of the most exciting storylines in Summer League so far, but that young core looks to grow tonight with the Rockets debut of 23rd overall pick, Usman Garuba.
According to Gigantes, a Spanish basketball outlet, Garuba will be making his debut tonight against the Raptors.

Garuba joining Jalen Green, Alperen Sengun and Josh Christopher is purely icing on the cake at this point as the future of Rockets basketball is rewinding back to the present.
Garuba did not play the first two Summer League games due to his Olympic commitment to Spain and his buyout dispute with Real Madrid that was resolved earlier this week.
TDS, this is your game thread for this evening. Enjoy!
