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.
