According to Chris Haynes of ESPN, the Rockets are among a handful of teams who have already reached out to free agent point guard Jameer Nelson.
It makes plenty of sense as the Rockets are looking to bolster their guard depth with Chris Paul possibly on the shelf for a month. Nelson can still play and was waived by the Nuggets, who needed to give those minutes to their pair of youngsters. He shouldn’t be on waivers long, as indicated by the fact that he’s already fielding several calls after officially clearing waivers earlier this afternoon. Nelson is unlikely to have any fantasy value unless he lands in a perfect-fit scenario.
