More on this storyline

VanVleet looks forward to assisting in the Rockets’ promising young players’ development as Houston attempts to be competitive again after three losing seasons. “I think just coming in and setting the tone and just bringing a professional approach from day one, I think it’s going to be a whole total new feel with what they’ve had between myself and Ime and just some of the other veterans that we’ve added,” VanVleet said, referring to fellow free agent additions Dillon Brooks and Jeff Green. “The young guys have a lot of talent, and we just got to kind of mesh it and mold it the best we can to be able to build a winner.” -via ESPN / July 8, 2023
