Update: Dekker closed out the Las Vegas Summer League as the Rockets' third-leading scorer with 14.4 points per game.
Analysis: Houston's 2015 first-round draft pick appeared in just three games for the Rockets during the 2015-16 campaign before undergoing back surgery in November. Even though this marked Dekker's second summer league, many close to the Rockets were eager to see how the 6-foot-9 forward would perform in his return to action. It's safe to assume that Dekker exceeded expectations, especially in regards to his shooting. Dekker knocked down 39 percent of his threes and shot 54 percent from the floor. With Dwight Howard no longer in the mix, someone will have to replace his production. While Dekker obviously won't contribute at center, the trickle-down effect of Howard's departure, as well as that of Terrence Jones, could yield some minutes to Dekker.
