After being selected with the 37th overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft, Onuaku spent the majority of the season in a developmental role. He played a total of just five games with the Rockets and instead, was sent to the formerly known D-League to work on his game. In 43 contests with the Rio Grande Valley Vipers, Onuaku averaged 13.6 points, 10.6 rebounds, 2.1 assists, 1.2 steals and 1.6 blocks across 28.0 minutes, showing at least some potential upside as both a rebounder and shot blocker. His offense still needs a lot of work and the Rockets currently have a logjam at the position, so he'll struggle to find minutes during his sophomore year. At best, Onuaku will attempt to push Tarik Black and Shawn Long for rights to the third center role, which should keep him off the Fantasy radar.
