2. JaMychal Green

The Memphis Grizzlies’ roster has more than one potential hidden gem.

JaMychal Green is another potential target for Houston, and he may actually be a better fit for the Rockets than Temple. In fact, recent reports indicate that the Rockets are particularly interested in acquiring Green from the Grizzlies because of his added ability to help on the boards.

Green is a career 35.8 percent 3-point shooter which is very similar to Temple, but Green is a few inches taller which makes him better suited to defend opponents in isolations which are inevitable with Houston’s style.

The Rockets have yet to find a complete replacement for Trevor Ariza as James Ennis has been unable to fill those shoes due to mostly injury. Green would provide another person to attempt to fill that hole as well as it would be awesome to have two Greens on one team.
