The Rockets start two elite point guards in Chris Paul and James Harden. Houston also does a great job staggering those two, keeping at least one on the court during nearly all competitive minutes.

But it’s a long season, and the Rockets could use another decent point guard – like Michael Carter-Williams.

Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN:

Carter-Williams career has trended downward in the four years since he won Rookie of the Year. His jump-shooting is a liability, and he’s too sloppy with the ball. It’s a tossup whether he makes Houston’s regular rotation.

But, at 6-foot-6, he defends pretty well. He could help in certain matchups and provides insurance if Paul or Harden get hurt.
