Usman Garuba He has already debuted with the Houston Rockets in the Summer League. The Spanish power forward, once his contractual situation with Real Madrid was resolved, headed to the United States to be able to play some preseason games with his new teammates.
The first of them was against the Toronto Raptors with a defeat for the Houston team by 92-76. Garuba played 12 minutes in which he caught 6 rebounds, stole a ball and missed the 4 shot attempts he had during the game.
«I’m very tired, but I wanted to play. I have missed some games and there are not many more left to play. I want to meet my teammates on the court. To be honest, I didn’t adapt well. I’m still jet lagged and very tired after the flight and all that. But I am very glad to be here«.
