Second-year forward Anthony Lamb will report to 2021-22 training camp with the Rockets after signing his qualifying offer, according to a Saturday report by the Houston Chronicle’s Jonathan Feigen. The offer was for another two-way contract, which Lamb played on last season.

A 6-foot-6 forward, Lamb averaged 5.5 points and 2.9 rebounds in 17.3 minutes per game with Houston last season. Now 23 years old, Lamb also earned high marks for his defensive play in summer league.

NBA teams can bring up to 20 players to training camps in late September, but they can only carry a maximum of 15 players under standard contracts. Assuming those regular slots are filled — and they are in Houston, at the moment — that leaves room for up to five players on training camp deals (i.e., Exhibit 10) or two-way contracts.

Lamb joins rookie forward Matthew Hurt on two-way deals, which would allow those players to also play in the NBA G League, while Armoni Brooks, Tyler Bey, and Daishen Nix are all currently on Exhibit 10 contracts. While further roster moves are certainly possible, especially since those five players are owed only minimal amounts of guaranteed money, Houston’s roster is completely full for the time being.
