Austin Adds Lorenzo Charles
- By Zach Podedworny, Day 45, 2023
AUSTIN - With the addition of Charles, the Rockets add a much needed defender in the backcourt. While the Rockets feel comfortable with their depth in the backcourt, Charles adds that element that the Rockets were looking for. With the injuries to Foreman and Jefferies causing McCray to move to PF and Turner to start, Charles should find some minutes at both SG and SF in a rotation with Luke Williams and Kareem Gaines.
Rockets receive SG/SF Lorenzo Charles from the Fireballs in exchange for the 2024 Tritons 2nd round pick and the 2025 Fireballs 2nd round pick.
