The Houston Rockets should pursue point guard Mike Conley in free agency.
In a free agent class that will feature superstar Kevin Durant, the Houston Rockets should make a strong push for point guard Mike Conley.
Of course, landing Durant would be great. The Rockets just need to make sure to play their cards right. It would be a shame to miss out on certain free agents because they were too locked in on signing Durant.
Among the best free agents of this offseason is Memphis Guard Mike Conley. Being a solid defender, and a 37 percent three-point shooter over the course of his career, Conley would be a great fit on a Rockets team that needs both better defense and better three-point shooting.

Furthermore, Conley is a point guard who can be successful without constantly having the ball in his hands, making him a good fit next to James Harden. Unlike Ty Lawson, Conley will be able to make the Rockets better by playing defense and knocking down spot up threes.
That being said, Conley is still good enough to create for himself and his teammates.
The Rockets need to upgrade at multiple positions, and Conley is only one free agent out of many. Still, his ability to shoot the three and play defense would go a long way in helping the Rockets to improve.
