Chris Walker Gets NBA Opportunity With The Rockets

HOUSTON, TX There's some hoops news to pass along where Holmes alum and former Gator Chris Walker is concerned.

Walker has signed a non-guaranteed contract with the Houston Rockets, the franchise he played for in the NBA Summer League. So obviously the folks in Houston impressed enough with Walker's work in the summer to take a chance on him. Word is it's a $525,000 deal, again non guaranteed, if he doesn't make the team, he won't make much.

Walker, to say the least, a huge disappointment down at Florida. Showed some flashes, but inconsistent play and a lack of conditioning big problems while wearing the orange and blue.
