Who says you can’t go home again? Jeff Green might be the best option from this Houston Rockets team for the OKC Thunder to target.

The Houston Rockets represent a prime trade deadline time, an organization that made some moves this summer in an attempt to climb out of the barrel of the NBA and into the play-in tournament; in a tough western conference, the Rockets still might fall flat on that goal.

In that event, this organization might be willing to sell off some veteran pieces for a few second-round picks and enter NBA Champion and OKC Thunder legend Jeff Green. After providing Denver veteran leadership en route to a title, Green inked a one-plus-one pact with the Rockets for 8 million dollars this season, including an 8 million dollar team option next season for the club to exercise or move on from.

A year ago, 37-year-old Jeff Green averaged seven points, two rebounds, and an assist per game while shooting 48 percent from the floor. While Green does not offer much beyond the arc, he can still get it done inside the three-point line.

Jeff Green would not be someone you leaned on for valuable playing time, but instead, a journeyman who has the wisdom to help a young team navigate their first season with true pressure and expectations.

Target: Jeff Green.
