Rockets pass on trades, select Onuaku, Zhou Qi in second round

As has happened in many past drafts, the Rockets talked about making trades but didn't execute any Thursday night, instead opting to stay where they were in the second round. Houston went for interior defense with their first selection, taking Chinanu Onuaku with the 37th overall pick, then went back to their China connection, nabbing 7'2" prospect Zhou Qi with the 43rd pick.
