Summer League Gives Daishen Nix Chance At Equal Balance With Houston Rockets

HOUSTON — Daishen Nix held the ball in his hands with 9:44 remaining in the fourth quarter on April 3 against the Minnesota Timberwolves. Nix had Minnesota’s Naz Reid in isolation and displayed an in-and-out hesitation crossover dribble to complete an And-1 layup.

Nix’s bucket against Reid may have been his top play of the season while playing for the Houston Rockets. But the move he showcased inside the Toyota Center is why Houston’s management views Nix as a lottery pick talent

The small sample size the Rockets experienced against the Timberwolves was a consistent output during Nix’s G League career playing for the Rio Grande Valley Vipers.
