Rockets Encouraged Diebler To Play Second Season Overseas
The Rockets encouraged Jon Diebler to play a second overseas because they have an abundance of wing players.
"(Rockets general manager) Daryl Morey told me they can see him on their roster in the future but this year is not the best time," Diebler’s agent, Lance Young said.
"Jon said he's going to go back to Europe this year and become a better player, and he'll go to training camp with the Rockets next year and make their roster. If he doesn't, he'll become a free agent."
Diebler signed a one-year deal with Pinar Karsiyaka, a team in Izmir, Turkey.
