(Rockets GM Daryl) Morey said the Rockets have had their eyes on (Jordan) Hamilton for awhile because of his athleticism and skill.

“His shooting and he is a really great rebounder,” Morey said. “One of our issues at the wing is when Dwight (Howard) goes to block a shot, our rebounding behind him has been challenged and we think Jordan can come in and shore that up. If he gets into the rotation – he will obviously be competing with some good players there like (Francisco) Garcia and (Omri) Casspi – we think he has a real chance to help us.

“He is really a highly-regarded prospect and hasn’t had a chance to emerge,” Morey said. “That is usually the kind of guy we do really well with, catch him before they get a chance and see them flourish with us.”
