4. Lonnie Walker IV

Everyone needs a home - even NBA players. It seems that Lonnie Walker IV is looking for a long-term NBA home.

Could the Rockets provide him with one? He'd make for an interesting fit. Walker IV is an elite run-and-jump athlete who could provide tremendous value in transition alongside Amen Thompson and Jalen Green.

More broadly, he's a player who's capable of creating his own shot and spacing the floor for others. Walker IV isn't a shooting specialist like some other players on this list, but he shoots just as efficiently. He'd add a new wrinkle to the Rockets' attack.

Unfortunately, he generally grades out as a horrendous defender. With that said, Walker IV has the physical tools to improve on that end. Perhaps Udoka could coax a career performance out of him.

If he could, the team would improve in the process.
