The Houston Rockets have temporarily axed its “Travis Scott Night” promotion slated for Wednesday night … with the team planning to honor the victims of the Astroworld tragedy in its place.
The Rockets were set to hand out 3,000 limited edition Scott-themed shirts prior to their matchup against the Detroit Pistons … but will instead have a moment of silence for the 8 people who died and the others affected at the music festival in Houston.
Of course, Scott is one of the Rockets’ most famous fans … and has been spotted courtside at countless games over the years.
But given the tragic events that took place Friday night, postponing the promotion was a no-brainer.
Rockets head coach Stephen Silas shared his condolences to the families of the victims of the festival … adding his 14 and 17-year-old daughters actually wanted to attend with their friends, but were unable to due to a volleyball tournament in Dallas.
As for Scott, he previously shared his grief over the deaths … saying he was “devastated” by the news and could never imagine something like that happening.
