The Houston Rockets announced Wednesday their roster for the 2013 Orlando Pro Summer League, which runs from July 7th through July 12th at the Orlando Magic's practice court in Amway Center. The event is closed to the public.

Note that Royce White, a first-round Draft choice in 2012, is not on Houston's squad. He is still under contract with the Rockets, but tweeted Wednesday afternoon that "there's been no communication to me about being wanted there [at Summer League]." White did not play in any games for the Rockets in the 2012/13 season.

Several returning Rockets indeed made the Orlando Pro Summer League team, including Patrick Beverley and Greg Smith. Second-round Draft choice Isaiah Canaan will also compete in the event.

Perhaps the most notable undrafted free-agent on Houston's summer squad is B.J. Young. In the 2012/13 season, the undersized shooting guard led the Razorbacks in scoring with 15.2 points per game.
