Idea of Houston Rockets selecting Jalen Green with No. 2 pick gaining traction

“‘Multiple people around the league love the idea of Green fitting in Houston, mainly because of the potential for stardom down the line and the backcourt fit with Kevin Porter Jr.,” wrote Kelly Iko of The Athletic.”

The Rockets organization needs a star to build around after James Harden pushed for a trade out of town and landed with the Brooklyn Nets. If Green has the potential to reach that level of stardom, the Houston Rockets will gladly hand the card in with his name on it.

At this point in their rebuild, Houston is in asset collection mode. They will take the best player available in their eyes and worry about the fit later on. In addition to Cunningham and Green, Evan Mobley, Jalen Suggs and Jonathan Kuminga are other names to watch for in the top five.

Eighteen days ago and most recent mock, Tankathon has Day'Ron Sharpe going #25.

ESPN's post combine mock has Sharpe at 31 to Milwaukee.

He missed the combine so he's not likely to move up much unless he has some good workouts.

ESPN.com/nba/insider/story/_/id/31725639/2021-nba-mock-draft-movement-lottery-combine

NBADraft.net doesn't have him as a first round pick in their latest mock and I couldn't find a second round mock there.

Not a fan of how they redesigned their site a couple years ago. They weren't a great source for mocks but had a simple layout that made it easy to view scouting reports on individual players

Thanks for the info guys. He seems somewhat in our range. Big guy, rebounder, seems to move well (not Ayton well, but we’ll for a 6’11 265lbs dude) and has a nice stroke from outside from few highlight/workout vids I’ve seen. I think his downside is he needs to watch his weight. Played behind a couple older players if I recall correctly. Nice prospect for a potential backup C. Though I wonder if Jones would go big two years in a row.

A pg I would like to see the Suns get. Apparently the Suns worked him out the other day. Tyson Etienne from Wichita St. Broke NBA combine record with a 46" vertical. Sharp shooter, high basketball IQ and reportedly in pre-draft workouts ran the pick and roll best of all other players. Nephew of Marcus Camby. Perhaps a Chris Paul understudy.

On the surface he sounds great but checking out his BR resume, it appears he's maybe closer to a young Eric Bledsoe than a young Chris Paul. Regardless, he sounds intriguing should we have the chance to pick him.

I hope the Suns take a long look at Ibou Badji. Freakish athleticism and very high upside!

Agree. But if we could milk a couple more years out of CP3 and Etienne could learn under him...that'd be money for us moving forward me thinks. Btw...I'm a little biased of course (lol) being a former Shocker...but nobody believed me about Fred Van Fleet and look what he's become. I like "smart" collectively cool point guards.

GG could you imaging having a PF like Barkley on this team? Id settle for a 6"5 PF if he was like Chuck.

I like that idea. Just look at how much Booker has changed, you can see CP3 in his moves now sometimes.
CP3 is the perfect teacher if the youngster buys in. +
I'm almost positive if we do go after a PG CP3 will have huge amount of input in who we do go after.
