When we last saw the Houston Rockets play a regular-season game in April, they were one of the NBA’s youngest teams and directed by a relatively unproven head coach in Stephen Silas.

To say the least, things have changed significantly in the months since. Ime Udoka replaced Silas as head coach and brought in his own staff of assistants, while general manager Rafael Stone spent more than $60 million in free agency to sign veteran players such as Fred VanVleet, Dillon Brooks, Jeff Green, and Jock Landale.

Those veterans will surround Houston’s young core of Jalen Green, Alperen Sengun, Kevin Porter Jr., Jabari Smith Jr., Tari Eason, and newly drafted 2023 rookies Amen Thompson and Cam Whitmore.

With that in mind, as of late July, here’s an updated look at where things stand with the Rockets’ coaching staff and roster of players entering the 2023-24 season. Many of the newcomers will not have their jersey numbers revealed until closer to training camp, which is scheduled to start in early October.

Height and weight information is from NBA.com, while salary details are from HoopsHype figures. Ages are as of August 1, 2023.
