This has been a busy week for the Rockets when it comes to filling out their 21-man camp roster — as they reportedly also have signed German wing Joshua Obiesie (full post) and shooting guard Jeenathan Williams (full post) to camp deals, and forward Jermaine Samuels to a two-way contract.

Hinton, 24, is 6-foot-5 and has appeared in 23 games since entering the NBA in 2020, most of which came with the Mavericks as a rookie. He played two of those games for the Pacers.

He spent last season with the Cleveland Charge of the G League, averaging 12.0 points and 6.3 rebounds in 27 games.

Mayer is 6-9 and went undrafted out of Illinois after spending his first four college seasons at Baylor. Like Hinton, Mayer looked good playing for the Rockets last month in the NBA Summer League.

As an aside, Feigen noted that Obiesie will not be in camp, but the Rockets will control his G League rights. With the exception of Samuels, the same is expected to be true of most of the players signed to camp deals.
