Roy Lee Rogers, Jr. (born August 19, 1973) is an American former professional basketball player who currently works as an assistant coach for the Houston Rockets of the National Basketball Association (NBA). He played college basketball for Alabama.

Professional career[edit]

Rogers, a 6' 9" power forward from the University of Alabama, was selected with the 22nd overall pick in the 1996 NBA Draft by the Vancouver Grizzlies. He was traded to the Boston Celtics one season later, along with Tony Massenburg, for a second-round draft pick. Just before the 1998 All-Star break, he was traded to the Toronto Raptors, with Dee Brown, Chauncey Billups, and John Thomas in a deal that sent Zan Tabak, Kenny Anderson, and Popeye Jones. He was then traded to the Houston Rockets, along with two first round draft picks in exchange for Kevin Willis. He was later sent to the Chicago Bulls, along with a 1999 second-round pick, in a deal for Scottie Pippen, but was waived by them after appearing in one game. He appeared in 137 NBA games between 1996 and 2000, averaging 4.8 points per game. He last played professionally in 2003 in Poland.

Coaching career[edit]

Rogers served as an assistant coach for the Tulsa 66ers and Austin Toros of the NBA Development League, and was head coach of the Huntsville Flight (now rebranded as the Albuquerque Thunderbirds) in 2005.[1]

He also worked as an assistant coach of the New Jersey Nets of the NBA.[2] On August 3, 2010, he became a scout for the Nets.[3] Shortly after, he left for the Boston Celtics. In 2013, he joined Jason Kidd's coaching staff on the Brooklyn Nets.[4] The next season, he joined the Washington Wizards coaching staff.

On June 1, 2016, Rogers became an assistant coach for the Houston Rockets.[5]
