Southwest Notes: Rockets, Randolph, Pelicans

Tonight’s look at the Southwest Division..

  • The Rockets announced (on Twitter) that Isaiah Canaan and Robert Covington have been assigned the club’s affiliate in Reno Grande Valley.  Both players are extremely familiar with the Vipers.
  • Zach Randolph reiterates his desire to remain with the Grizzlies for the rest of his career, though he adds in his interview with Marc Stein of that he hasn’t had any talks with team management as a decision on his player option for next season looms (video link).
  • The Pelicans‘ late-season release of Greg Stiemsma is an embarrassment, opines Jimmy Smith of the Times-Picayune.  New Orleans signed veteran journeyman Melvin Ely in his stead.
