After not hearing his name be called during the draft former Tennessee State forward Robert Covington has signed with the Houston Rockets according to Draft Express

The 6’7 Covington, who leaves TSU as the seventh leading scorer and rebounder having scored 1,749 points and pulled down 876 rebounds, was projected as a second round pick in many NBA mock drafts but wasn’t selected in the 60 slots.

Covington will get to team up with fellow OVC player Isaiah Canaan who was drafted by the Houston Rockets in the second round in the 2013 NBA Draft.

According to the report Covington signed a partially guaranteed two year contract according to sources and it is is believed to be worth $150k.
