The Rockets are trying to focus on basketball after Daryl Morey’s tweet sparked controversy in China, which then sent aftershocks back to the United States and beyond.

It’s not all good news on the basketball front, either.

Shams Charania of The Athletic:

Gerald Green has been a key contributor to the Rockets the last couple years. The wing gets up many 3-pointers and makes them at a strong clip. That outside shooting works well next to stars like James Harden and Russell Westbrook, who command so much attention.

Green’s playing time will likely get distributed to Austin Rivers, Danuel House and maybe Eric Gordon (though Gordon might have already been headed toward his max minutes).
