The 6-foot-10 inch center would be a great fit for the Rockets if Houston were to miss out on Jimmy Butler.
The athletic big would provide much-needed depth for Houston at the center position. Houston has had to rely on the 17-year vet Nene for the backup center role for the past three seasons.
As seen with Kenneth Faried, who jumped from averaging 5.1 points per game in Brooklyn to 12.9 with Houston, an athletic big can fare very well under D’Antoni’s system.
Davis’ length and height make him a perfect fit.
For his career, Davis has made around the Mid Level Exception that Houston will have available which is the taxpayer mid-level exception (T-MLE) worth $5.7 million.
If Davis were willing to take less than the full MLE, Houston should be all over him come Free Agency.
