9 point guards the Rockets can still pursue in free agency
8. Chris Chiozza
Chris Chiozza played on the Houston Rockets’ Summer League team in 2019 and played well, as he averaged 6.4 assists, which was a team-high and was second-best in the Summer League. Chiozza added 9.8 points and made 42.9 percent of his threes, so the Rockets’ brass should be familiar with the former Florida Gator.
Chiozza spent the 2019-20 season on both the Washington Wizards and the Brooklyn Nets, and shot the three ball well with both teams. During his stint with the Wizards, Chiozza made 43.8 percent of his treys, although on a limited number of attempts (1.6 per game, to be exact).
Chiozza made 35.7 percent of his treys during his 18 games in Brooklyn on a much healthier 3.1 attempts per game. All in all, the 25-year-old averaged 14.9 points, 7.1 assists, and 4.9 rebounds per 36 minutes, and the Brooklyn Nets went 12-6 in the regular season in games that he played in.
Chiozza has career averages of 4.2 points and 2.5 assists, in addition to a career 3-point shooting clip of 37.7 percent. Chiozza can create shot opportunities for others and can also score on his own, which would make his skillset an ideal one for the Rockets.
