As district play begins in basketball, so does the Guy V. Lewis 2017-18 Award watch list.

Houston is home to the likes of NBA pros such as De’Aaron Fox (Cy Lakes) and Justin Jackson (HCYA) of the Sacramento Kings, Justise Winslow (St. John’s) of the Miami Heat, Wesley Iwundu (Westfield) of the Orlando Magic, Joseph Young of Indiana Pacers, Kelly Oubre (Bush) of Washington and Andrew Harrison (Travis) of the Memphis Grizzlies. Don’t forget Gerald Green of the Rockets who played at Gulf Shores Academy.

These are the guys who came before this installment of the Guy V. Lewis Award. College Park’s Quentin Grimes, Sam Houston’s Kendric Davis and Jamal Bieniemy headline the list, but there are dozens of H-Town hoopers challenging for the city’s top player award.

Texans to hire David Culley. Composite image by Jack Brame

Ian Rapoport is reporting that the Texans will hire former Ravens assistant head coach David Culley as their new head coach. John McClain reported earlier on Wednesday that the coaching hire was narrowed down to Culley and Bills DC Leslie Frazier.

Now the question becomes, what does Deshaun Watson think of the hire? Culley has no experience as a head coach but did work closely with Andy Reid from 1999-2012 in Philly and 2013-2016 in KC. Many believed that Chiefs OC Eric Bieniemy would be the next Texans coach because of his years learning from Reid. But the Texans opted for the lesser-known Culley instead.
