Rockets release updated height and weight measurements for 2022-23 roster
In updated metrics ahead of Houston Rockets training camp, which opens Tuesday, Jalen Green has gained weight. Meanwhile, Kevin Porter Jr., Alperen Sengun and Jabari Smith Jr. are among several players listed as taller than their previous body measurements.
Green, a sophomore goaltender, weighs 183 pounds for the 2022-23 season, up from 178 in 2021-22. This aligns with his statements about adding volume and strength during the recently concluded 2022 NBA offseason. Sengun, now Houston’s starting center, is listed at 255 pounds — up 20 from his 235-pound rookie roster.
Sengun is also listed as 6ft 11in, two inches taller than his height of 6ft 9in as a rookie. As he just turned 20, a growth spurt is at least possible. The same could be said of the 19-year-old Smith, who is listed at 6-foot-11 after being measured at 6-foot-10 ahead of the 2022 NBA draft in June.
Porter, now 22, has also grown two inches over the past year — from 6-foot-4 to 6-foot-6, according to the Rockets.
Here are some other changes from the previous metrics, which were last published before Monday’s media day:
Jae’Sean Tate is now 6ft 5in, up from 6ft 4in
Eric Gordon is now 6ft 4in and 238lbs, down from 6ft 3in and 215lbs
