Fox Sports Houston: Daily Rockets Update
1) Jeff Van Gundy plans to have Carmelo Anthony ahead of Wally Szczerbiak for the starting SF spot going into training camp.
2) Rockets will keep 2nd round pick PF Sofoklis Schortsianitis and have him compete with Drew Gooden for the backup PF spot. Rockets were one of the worst in the league last season in turnovers and like the Greek's ball-handling and passing skills in the post.
3) Rockets offer backup SF Brian Cardinal a contract. Cardinal will decide tomorrow whether to accept. Cardinal only appeared in 3 games for the Rockets last season while being the primary SF backup in the 2001-2002 season.
