WATCH LIVE: Rockets Draft 2023

It’s draft night for NBA hopefuls, and the KPRC 2 Sports team is making its predictions for how the Houston Rockets will fare.

The Rockets are mainly linked to OTE Elite playmaker Amen Thompson at the 4th pick, but recently a name that has been rising on draft boards and connecting to Houston is Villanova Forward Cam Whitmore.

Whitmore is just 18 years old with a versatile game, and outlets like Bleacher Report, The Athletic, and CBS Sports believe he’s the fit for Houston.

KPRC 2 Sports Director Randy McIlvoy and Sports Anchor Ari Alexander will host our live 2023 NBA Draft special exclusively on KPRC 2+ from the Rockets draft party in downtown Houston.

Whitmore spent his offseason working out in Houston through his agency, WME Sports, alongside Houston Cougars star forward Jarace Walker. The pair has worked with local trainer Aaron Miller for the past 5 weeks.
