Who should be Rockets’ backup point guard in 2022-23?

Discussions about point guards tend to get a little contentious with Rockets fans. That’s inevitable. The guy we’ve got starting at the position may or may not be one.

Blissfully, this article isn’t about that. You may think Kevin Porter Jr. is destined for multiple All-Star appearances, and you may think there’s a chance he’ll be out of the league after next season.

(Sorry. I couldn’t help myself).

In any event, Porter Jr. is an enigma. He just isn’t one I’m looking to unpack here. Whether he’s a point guard or not, he’ll need a backup next season.
