Option One: Jett Howard

Jett Howard is a sharpshooter from the University of Michigan. Howard averaged 14 points, 0.7 blocks, two assists, 1.3 turnovers, and just under three rebounds per game.

Howard played in roughly thirty-one minutes per game while shooting 41.4 percent on field goals and 36.8 percent from three. It is important to note that Howard is not just a spot-up shooter as he was able to cook his defender off the dribble multiple times.

While Howard's main appeal is his shooting, he also possesses great passing abilities and can make difficult reads, in addition to being somewhat able to create for himself. The main thing Howard will struggle with at the NBA level is his defensive ability.

While Howard was often enganged as an on-ball defender there were many possessions where he was blown by. Additionally, his off-ball defense needs improvement as well.

However, even with these flaws, I can see Howard possibly operating the second unit, or being used as a 3-point sharpshooter. Howard has posted numerous pictures on his Twitter of him wearing Rockets gear, and it has been confirmed that he worked out for the Rockets.

NBA comparison: A comparison for Howard would be Atlanta Hawks forward Bogdan Bogdanovic as both players are known as stellar 3-point shooters.
