The Houston Rockets are set to start training camp at the end of this month and have 17 players on the payroll, as outlined here by Spotrac. They’ve still got room to add more to the roster, so they are surely going to look to add more players. They are also financially strapped, so they are likely looking to bring in players on non-guaranteed deals.
As currently constructed, the Rockets have a top heavy roster, as they are loaded with guards. In fact, 10 of their 17 roster spots are filled with guards. This is why I’m not sure I understand the recent news regarding the team.
