3. Reggie Bullock
Bullock is already on his third team in the last four months. The Mavericks traded him to the Spurs to get Grant Williams. San Antonio waived him in early October, and the 6’6 wing quickly signed with the Rockets. Houston wants to exit their rebuild and return to the playoffs, but it won’t be easy in the loaded Western Conference.
Bullock is on a one-year minimum deal and could quickly depart if the Rockets are back in the lottery. Houston owes their 2024 first-round pick to the Thunder with a top-four protection. The Rockets want to make the playoffs or have one of the worst records in the NBA. Even at the bottom of the standings, they would have just a 52.1 percent of keeping their pick in the lottery.
Bullock is a 3-and-D wing who played a key role in the Mavericks reaching the conference finals in 2022. He has connected on 38.4 percent of his career 3-point attempts and has the versatility to guard multiple positions. The 6’6 wing would be the perfect depth piece for any contender.
Houston will attempt to trade Reggie Bullock and could pick up a couple of second-round picks. If they decide to release him, multiple contenders will be bidding for his services, but the Phoenix Suns have the advantage of three stars and an owner willing to spend.
