College Hoyas NBA Draft Pro

Houston Rockets sign L.J. Peak

Rockets agree to a Summer League deal with Georgetown standout L.J. Peak.

Georgetown’s L.J. Peak didn’t get picked in the NBA Draft, but he signed a free agent deal with the Houston Rockets on Friday.

The deal does not guarantee a spot on the 15-man roster, but Peak will play on the Rockets’ Summer League team.

“Has been a childhood dream and it’s finally coming true,” Peak told GoUpstate.com. “It broke my heart a little because I always wanted to get drafted, but at the end of the day I’ve still got a chance, so that makes me happy.”

Peak was second on the Hoyas in scoring with 16.3 points per game and led the team with 34 steals. Peak plans to compete at the highest level during the summer, and show the Rockets why he deserves to be in the NBA.

“They wanted me for a reason and I’m going to be ready to compete,” Peak said. “There isn’t too much I can’t do it. I just want to go out there and show I’ve got a complete game.”
