6) Jalen Green

2021 second overall pick Jalen Green could be on the move this summer. With the Houston Rockets set to have their fourth consecutive losing season, the pressure will be on them to improve and make the playoffs next year. Green, who is playing much better of late, is their best trade asset to make that happen. In fact, they could look to package him and what is likely to be a top-10 pick in this year's NBA draft in hopes of making an impact trade.

They reportedly tried to land Mikal Bridges in a deal with the Brooklyn Nets, but the Nets declined, though the Rockets could try again with the aforementioned trade package. It seems unlikely that the Nets would agree to any deal involving Bridges, but the Rockets will certainly try to make improvements this summer, especially with coach Ime Udoka.

Udoka seems intent on getting the Rockets back into contention and will probably be pushing for more roster changes this summer. Assuming that is the case, then Green could be on his way out of Houston.
