It has been a tough two years for the Rockets as they finished regular seasons at the bottom of the Western Conference both times. As the team parted ways with James Harden, it started a rebuild and focused on developing young players.
One of them is Jalen Green, the number two pick of the last year’s NBA Draft, wants Rockets fans to keep supporting the team and be patient as it climbs back up in the next few years.
“Stay tuned, stay excited, stay with us,” Green said, via Joey Mistretta of ClutchPoints. “I mean, it’s a rebuild. Just believe in the process, believe in the people that we have here. We are going to come here and work hard. Hopefully this year, next year, the year after that, we are just going to take off. So just stay patient with us.”
This past season Green averaged 17.3 points, 3.4 rebounds and 2.6 assists in 31.9 minutes per game for the Rockets.
