The Rockets' Summer League team for 2013 is stacked with players who played for the Rockets during the 2013 season.

Patrick Beverley, Terrence Jones, James Anderson, Greg Smith, and Tim Ohlbrecht all form part of the 14-man squad playing in Orlando from July 7-12.

Beverley came from Russia midway through the 2013 season and became a key cog off the Rockets bench. He averaged 5.6 points and 2.9 assists during the regular season. These numbers bumped up to 11.8 points and 5.5 rebounds in the playoffs, including five starts when Jeremy Lin dealt with injury and Kevin McHale shuffled to a smaller lineup to create matchup problems for the Thunder.

Terrence Jones showed flashes of his potential in his rookie season out of Kentucky. The power forward spent ample time in the D-League, but came back with a strong April, including two double doubles off the bench.

James Anderson signed with the Rockets around the New Year. Combined with his games with the Spurs, Anderson averaged 3.8 points off the bench.

Greg Smith averaged six points and 4.6 rebounds in a coming-out season for the forward from Fresno. Smith ended the regular season as the Rockets' starting power forward.

Tim Ohlbrecht played in the D-League All-Star Game, representing Rio Grande Valley. He signed a contract with the Rockets shortly thereafter. He saw action in three games with the Rockets.

New draft pick Isaiah Canaan will also be part of the team.

All five Summer League games can be watched live on Comcast SportsNet Houston.
