Lawson focused as he prepares to start camp with Rockets

HOUSTON (AP) - Ty Lawson can't wait to start camp with the Houston Rockets and knows he's facing a pivotal time in his career.

The point guard was traded from Denver in July while in a 30-day residential treatment program following his second DUI arrest.

He embraces the fresh start he has in Houston and is excited to join a contender after two straight losing seasons in Denver. He says: "I'm in a different mindset this year because I know we're going to be playing for something."

General manager Daryl Morey has been encouraged by the growth he's seen from Lawson since the trade. Lawson says he doesn't want to let his new teammates down.

Houston, which reached the Western Conference finals last season, opens camp on Tuesday.
