Eric Gordon would still be a good bench player on a playoff team. But on the third-worst team in The Association in 2021, the 32-year-old guard is wildly overpaid, and the four-year, $75 million contract extension the Rockets gave Gordon in 2019 keeps looking worse for Houston’s NBA squad. Victor Oladipo is making an “affordable” $21 million this season.
Lamb, who was previously in the NBA G League, averaged 18.2 points and 8.8 rebounds with the Rio Grande Valley Vipers.
The Rockets will move to add frontcourt depth to their roster by signing Rio Grande Valley Vipers center Anthony Lamb to a two-way contract, a person with knowledge of the plans said on Monday. Lamb, a 6-foot-6 forward/center out of Vermont, played well for the Vipers since acquired from the Canton Charge after the Rockets brought up Ray Spalding, creating a need for another center.
