Anthony Lamb, a second-year forward in the NBA, won himself a good grade for his strong defensive performance at the 2021 Las Vegas Summer League and could return to the Houston Rockets for the 2021/21 training camp.
From the Houston Chronicle, Jonathan Feigen reported via best American online casino: "Lamb is expected to be the final player at camp, either by accepting a qualifying offer for another two-way contract or with an Exhibit 10 agreement."
The second-year forward signed a two-way contract last campaign, and now the Rockets intends to hand the player a qualifying offer this offseason which will see him become a restricted free agent.
Displaying his impressive defensive performance to snatch the ball from an opponent to pass to Josh Christopher who, in turn, displayed astounding speed and athleticism to score a two-pointer in the game in the Summer League.
NBA teams are allowed to take up to 20 players to training camp, but only a maximum of 15 players will be placed under the standard contracts we know. If those regular slots are completed, and they are in Houston, that will be leaving slots for five players under training camp deals (i.e., Exhibit 10) or two-way contracts.
Tyler Bey, Armoni Brooks, and Daishen Nix are players on the Exhibit 10 deals for now, while Matthew Hurt signed a two-way deal with the franchise.
With the exception of using a transaction to free up additional space in the roster, that will be leaving just one spot to be filled, and that spot seems to be set up for Anthony Lamb, at the moment.
Lamb, who stands 6-foot-6, was able to register 5.5 points and 2.9 rebounds on average in 17.3 minutes per game with the Houston Rockets last campaign. Now that he is 23 years of age, we should be expecting more brilliance from the player.
However, before the regular season commences, the Houston Rockets will need to see a reduction in their camp roster to a maximum of 15 players, who are under regular contracts and two on two-way contracts, which allowed those players to participate in the NBA G League.
This is what happened with Lamb last campaign after putting up interesting numbers with Houston's Rio Grande Valley affiliate, and he could be playing a similar role for the upcoming regular season.
In other news, Houston Rockets new addition to the team, Usman Garuba, as compared to Dallas Mavericks superstar, Luka Doncic, and the youngster was not having it as he claimed he is his own man.
He said via online pokies au: "There is only one Doncic and I am a completely different player. What we do have in common is that we were team mates together at Real Madrid and both of us have come to the NBA at the same age, but we are totally different."
