The guard also spent time with the Rio Grande Valley Vipers, Houston's D-League affiliate, after signing with the Rockets on August 23, 2010, after going undrafted.

Dorsey, meanwhile, has spent the last few seasons playing abroad – averaging 5.3 points per game and 5.9 rebounds per game last year with FC Barcelona of the Liga ACB.

The center was originally drafted by the Portland Trailblazers with the 33rd overall pick in the 2008 NBA Draft before being traded to Houston.

Adrien, spending last year with both Charlotte and Milwaukee, averaged 6.6 points per game and 5.6 rebounds per game in 53 games during the 2013-14 season.

The young forward has also spent time playing for the Vipers, winning the NBA D-League Impact Player of the Year in 2011.
