HOUSTON (SportsRadio 610)-Each time Kelvin Sampson took the Houston Cougars to Philadelphia, he expected that he could always see Robert Covington on the stand.
San Binson was Rockets’ main assistant when Covington signed as an unrecruited free agent outside Tennessee, and the Rockets staff trainer spent no more time with Sampson, 23.
Sampson has come a long way to Fox 26 after Rockets regained Covington in a four-team exchange last week.
Covington spent most of the 2013-2014 season at the League in Rio Grande Valley.
Covington appeared in seven NBA games and was dropped at the end of next season’s training camp because Sampson was held at the U of H, but Sampson is surprised that Covington has become a solid NBA player Say no.
Robert was one of the newcomers who loved to train, and he liked to train hard, “Sampson said.” You can face Robert.
Less than three weeks after Robinz packed him, Covington landed on the Philadelphia 76ers, where he became one of the NBA’s wings 3 and D. He was the first national team two seasons ago, citing Sampson as a reason for success.
Covington spoke of Sampson on Monday. So, in the end, by spending that time with him and growing up as a player, I learned a lot from him.
Overall, that year was very big for me.
In three games with Rockets, Covington was felt. He shoots about 38% from behind the 3 point line, averaging 12.3 points per game in about 30 minutes.
Sampson said it was good in both respects used by Dantoni. He can really defend the ball, can really shoot, and he is a tough kid. It is a great choice.
Covington said he saw the Sampson Cougars crushing Wichita on Sunday afternoon, but we can expect to see him soon at the Ferrata Center.
I need to catch the game and catch up with it.
