Rockets Continue Rebuild without Foreman
- By Zach Podedworny, Day 93, 2023
AUSTIN - The Rockets decided to move on from Foreman as they were impressed with the play of rookie Qwan Songaila. Foreman carried a heavy cap hit and the Rockets did not plan on picking up his option after this year.
The Rockets are excited to acquire Omari Woodley as a compliment to the young frontcourt. The Rockets will continue to work with Woodley as he rehabs his injury. The Rockets will immediately place Brooks on the trading block. The Rockets were interested in Brooks in the offseason, but with the acquisition of Jaleen Rifkind, the Rockets had no need for the young PG.
Rockets send C Isaiah Foreman to the Kings in exchange for PG Ashanti Brooks and PF Omari Woodley.
