Holy crap. So is he actually on the team, or just the preseason roster?

This should give him a good shot to make the D-League

He'll make the D-league. What might happen is that they give him a partially guarenteed contract and assign him to the D-League. If that happens its not a bad deal as he'll get at least 6 figures and be on call should they need a shooter.

Man that Jumper must be getting better. When a player gets to tryouts in camps in the same year it means he has done something right. Remember we've got some good ones who never even got an invite to camp.

He definitely has a skill that very few others truly possess, he is a deadeye from well beyond NBA range and a volume shooter at that. When you make 120+ at a 40% clip you get noticed.

Natty simply shows that hard work pays off. This kid has truly represent VCU, even more so after graduation. First he wins the NCAA 3 point shoot out, Men and overall, then he gets these invites. He has truly exceed all expectations except his own.

As to his making a roster, we have to remember he has two promising factors, first and foremost that J from deep, second he is cheap, a great bargin for a team with a lot of high/Max salaries.

Some comments from Rockets' fans:
Seems like an easy guy to root for. I like his mentality. He would be a great running mate with Lin. Let Lin create shots with driving ability, and this guy seems very capable of knocking them down. Off the ball movement and catch-and-shoot look good also. RGV system is top notch.
Fits in line with Morey's philosophy of getting 1-dimensional players later in the draft and hope to develop all-around ability through early years development.

If he can develop his defensive side, he'll be a rotation player down the line. If he can develop his ball handling side & defensive side, it keeps going up.

Could amount to a 3 & D player. He's got 1 side down.

So by them bringing him in, then cutting him. Their D-League team would get exclusive rights to him.
