The Rockets and Raptors begin Summer League action in Las Vegas on Friday at 6 p.m. ET, as both teams get a chance to evaluate their young talent. Chandler Parson and Donatas Motiejunas headline this squad, along with Houston first round draft picks Jeremy Lamb, Royce White and Terence Jones.

For Rockets fans, it will be important to pay close attention to White and Jones, who many believe to be similar players and one of which will be traded sooner or later. Fans will want to know which one has the greater upside out of the two forwards, and also whether or not Lamb was worth passing up an available center with the 14th pick.

Houston and Toronto have already encountered this offseason, when the Rockets sent point guard Kyle Lowry to the Raptors.
