How Rockets' Jalen Green already has Skip Bayless, national media taking notice

Monday on Undisputed, Skip Bayless and Shannon Sharpe discuss Jalen Green's impressive summer league performance against the Cavs on Sunday. Green scored 23 points on 9-of-18 shooting, leading the Rockets to an 84-76 win. Bayless went on to say that he believes Jalen Green is making the statement that "Detroit made the wrong pick at No. 1, taking Cade Cunningham." Bayless also said he believes Green has the talent to lead the league in scoring at some point in his career, and Houston fans should be excited that basketball will be fun again in the near future.

With only one summer league game in the books, we don't want to make too big a deal out of one game. But Rockets fans have to love what they're seeing from the No. 2 pick so far. As far as Green being the better pick than Cade Cunningham, we'll have to wait before we make that assessment. However, Green and Cunningham will play each other this Tuesday when the Rockets take on the Pistons at 8pm on ESPN.

Texans to release prominent player on defense

According to multiple reports, the Texans are waiving LB Zach Cunningham. Cunningham was benched last Sunday for disciplinary reasons, which reportedly stemmed from a missed COVID test. Cunningham was also benched for a quarter earlier in the season for breaking team rules.

According to Ian Rapoport, the Texans will have to eat his 12.8 million dollar cap hit next season.

Cunningham started in seven of the 10 games he’s played this season recording 67 tackles and a forced fumble. The Texans are at a point where there's hardly anyone left on the team that has any name recognition with what's left of the fan base. And now the Texans have another position that will have to be addressed this offseason.

Cunningham will likely command a lot of attention from other teams interested in his services.
