Though the Houston Rockets didn't land Dwight Howard (not yet, at least), they managed to stockpile a plethora of draft picks in the offseason. Two of those draft picks have signed their rookie deals, according to Jonathan Feigen.

Houston selected White with the No. 16 pick in the 2012 NBA Draft, and they selected Jones with the No. 18 pick.

Lamb, who is expected to sign relatively soon, was Houston's first selection in the draft. Houston selected Lamb with the No. 12 overall pick. Lamb spent two seasons at the University of Connecticut before declaring for the NBA Draft, and he was a key piece in UConn's improbable 2011 championship team. Despite a drop in production in 2012, Lamb figures to be a nice addition to the Rockets.
