2. Luke Kennard

The Houston Rockets have a dire need for a 3-point shooter, as they don't have any knockdown shooters on the roster. The Rockets have gotten good shooting out of Aaron Holiday (41.5 percent from three) but that wasn't expected. 

And him being on the floor has it's disadvantages, as he gets tunnel vision and often decides against passing his teammates when they're open. Luke Kennard would be the perfect shooter for the Rockets, as he's a career 43.5 percent 3-point shooter and is shooting 39.4 percent from deep on a healthy 5.5 attempts this season.

Kennard made 54 percent of his treys in the final 24 games of the 2022-23 season, following his trade to the Grizzlies at the deadline (5.7 attempts). In addition, the 27-year-old sharpshooter led the league in long-range shooting percentage in each of the last two seasons (44.9 percent in 2021-22 and 49.4 percent in 2022-23).

Kennard has already set franchise records for the Grizzlies, despite only being with the franchise for less than a year, as he made 10 triples in the Grizzlies' 151-114 victory over the Rockets, setting a single-game record.
