Robert Covington

Covington has signed, or will soon be signing, a partially guaranteed deal with the Rockets. This is likely nothing more than an extremely early training camp invite, yet it is evidence of what they think of him. Averaging 15.8 points and 7.5 rebounds as a senior for Tennessee State last season, along with 2.1 steals and 1.8 blocks, Covington can be found somewhere along the oft-straddled line between small forward and power forward, operating primarily as a face-up shooter whilst best served defensively on the interior with his length and decent athleticism. He projects, then, as a face-up four. But this doesn't mean he can just disregard everything that isn't a jumpshot.

Houston -­ Robert Covington: Often set up by Canaan, Covington is pouring in 16.8 points, 9.3 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 2.2 steals and 1.7 blocks per game, some nice numbers across the board.

His face­up power forward game projects nicely in the new NBA, but without being a stand­out defensively, the jump-shot needs to be of at least the next level up. Nevertheless, Covington is productive, fluid and fairly polished.
