Houston Rockets: 4 players to help the team improve
4. Nikola Mirotic
The Anthony Davis saga has taken an interesting turn in the last few days as it has been reported that Davis has formally requested a trade to leave New Orleans.
If the Pelicans do decide to adhere to Davis’ request, it will likely mean that New Orleans would decide to shop more of their talent and try to gain as many assets for them.
One player who would be a perfect prototype for the Rockets would be Nikola Mirotic who is a career 35.9 percent 3-point-shooter and has a career 52.2 effective field-goal percentage.
Mirotic would also be able to provide height as he stands at 6-foot-10, which could help Houston rebound the ball as it is something the Rockets have struggled with all season long (they currently rank 27th in the league in rebounding).
Mirotic would still allow for Houston to space the floor as he is a great 3-point-shooter and would be perfect on the court once Clint Capela returns. Teams will not be able to collapse on James Harden with the pick and roll if Mirotic is on the wing ready to fire.
Next: No. 3
