Trey Burke

The Rockets don’t normally go deep into their bench rotation, as that’s not necessarily Mike D’Antoni‘s style. With both Chris Paul and Austin Rivers on the roster, Burke may not be someone the Rockets turn to. But he finished the season as a member of the Dallas Mavericks, posting averages of 10 points per game while shooting 46% from the field and a notch under 36% from three, en route to 17.4 minutes per night. Burke would be sure to sign for the minimum, especially on a Rockets team that would give him an opportunity to be a part of a contender.

Lance Stephenson

Last season, “Make Em’ Dance Lance” shot 37% from three, which was the second best clip of his 9 year career. Stephenson isn’t known for being efficient on the offensive end, posting a field goal percentage of 42%. Stephenson posted averages of 15.7 points and 7 rebounds per 36 minutes and could surely be had for the veteran’s minimum. Stephenson also once famously led the league in triple doubles as well.
