Rockets pass on draft by adding Euro-stash, dumping second pick

It just wouldn't be the NBA Draft if the Rockets didn't get involved heavily in rumors only to underwhelm their fans. Daryl Morey and company didn't make any trades Thursday night and opted to punt on the draft, selecting a draft-and-stash young center from Germany and trading away their second selection. The Rockets drafted 19-year old seven-footer Isaiah Hartenstein, a player they hope to keep overseas for a season or two. They traded the 45th pick (Dillon Brooks) to Memphis for a future second rounder. So now we head to what the Rockets hope is the real interesting part -- free agency.
