1. Terence Davis

Terence Davis could easily be the best free agent fit for the Rockets still available. Davis could be slotted in the Kevin Porter Jr. role, as he's a microwave scorer off the bench and is capable of absolutely taking over games.

Last season, Davis made 36.6 percent of his 3-point attempts- bringing much-needed shooting to a Rockets team losing their best shooter in Porter. And it doesn't help that Rockets GM Rafael Stone decided against adding 3-point specialists this summer.

Davis found himself out of the rotation in Sacramento last season, as he played just 13.1 minutes per game. Despite that, he's still just 26-years-old and averaged 6.7 points and 2.2 rebounds. 

The year before, he had a career year, despite struggling for playing time (10.4 points in 17.9 minutes per contest). Davis is also a serviceable defender, although he'll never be mistaken for Dillon Brooks on that end of the floor.

Davis is also reliable on the corner, as he made over 40 percent of his treys on that area of the floor. Davis is still in his prime and would easily be the cleanest KPJ fill-in possible, although he doesn't have the ability to be a tertiary playmaker like Porter.

And he's also not nearly as good of a defender as Porter.

But the ability to provide offensive firepower on the second unit would prove to be beneficial for a team seeking to take a leap and turn the corner.
