HOUSTON — After a week of wheeling and dealing with trades and free agency, the Rockets welcomes a new face to the Toyota Center.

No, not Chris Paul. We still have to wait for that, but GM Darryl Morey and the Rockets introduced new forward PJ Tucker.

Donning former Rockets favorite Patrick Beverley’s #2 jersey, Tucker is looking to bring aggression, size and toughness to the Rockets line-up.

The Rockets also re-signed backup center Nene Hilario and forward/center Zhou Qi.
