Will Gersson Rosas Have Impact Again With RGV Vipers Upon Return to Houston Rockets?

Sam Sharpe-USA TODAY Sports

Now that he's returned to Houston, will Rockets' executive Gersson Rosas experience similar success by making an impact with the NBADL-affiliated RGV Vipers?

In nine years with the Houston Rockets, Gersson Rosas moved up the ranks and went on to make a tremendous impact on the team's scouting efforts, and more specifically, did so through the NBA D-League.

While overseeing the minor league affiliated RGV Vipers, Rosas continued to unearth previously undiscovered young gun gems. The team won two championships, and reached the NBADL Finals three times in four years under the executive's artistry.

Last season's team's stars included Glen Rice Jr. and Toure Murry, both of whom have since moved on to the NBA with the Wizards and Knicks, respectively. Rosas also acquired Andrew Goudelock, who emerged as the league's Most Valuable Player, midseason.

Needless to say, Rosas continued to have success at that level before moving on to join the Dallas Mavericks. But now that he's returned to Houston in a similar capacity to the one he served previously, will the executive resume utilizing the D-League as his oyster?

One would have to believe so, not that RGV needs much help at this point. At 10-2, the team is currently the minor league's top seeded team. What's more, new head coach Nevada Smith has the squad's offense flowing nicely and moving at a quicker pace than most NBADL teams.

Still, with talents like Troy Daniels and former Rockets' Tim Ohlbrecht currently in town, there's plenty of young potential still to be explored in RGV in case Houston's roster needs a 'pick me up' in the months to follow.
