2. Houston Rockets
The Rockets reportedly want to start winning and use their cap space to bring in some veterans. If that is true, what they need more than anything is a point guard to organize their offense and put their young players into a position to succeed. They could also use a productive and experienced wing, however, to improve their game on both ends of the floor as well as help build a culture and identity.
Kuzma could add scoring, playmaking, and rebounding that could drastically improve the Rockets as well as some competitive defense on the wing. Only Jalen Green averaged more points than Kuzma last season with an average of 22.1 points and only Alperen Sengun grabbed more rebounds (9 per game). If they do, in fact, want to accelerate their rebuild, Kuzma could be one possible veteran to help with that.
Houston has amassed a ton of young talent, but their problem is that few high-level veterans want to be a part of such a young and somewhat chaotic squad. Kuzma, however, might be inclined to sign with the highest bidder and if they wanted to land him, that could very well be the Rockets. Since a James Harden reunion is apparently not very likely anymore, Kuzma would be one of the best available free agents available to add to their young squad.
