Former Clemson standout K.J. McDaniels has been on the bench of the Houston Rockets for most of the season as the veterans get the majority of the minutes on the floor. The 24-year old wing is averaging only 2.8 points, 0.1 assists, and 1.0 rebounds in 7.3 minutes per game this season.

The Rockets are thinking of moving McDaniels ahead of the trade deadline on Thursday.

"Houston is chasing a win-now move, sources say, and may send out K.J. McDaniels as the sweetener," ESPN.com said. "McDaniels doesn't play, mostly because of a busted jumper. Some team should take a shot on him at the right price. If there's a lesson of the last half-decade of NBA trades, it's this: When there's a rangy or athletic wing that has even a 10 percent chance of being decent, try to grab that player as a throw-in to a larger deal. Think about how teams landed Crowder, Middleton, Iman Shumpert, Will Barton, and even Tim Hardaway Jr. You cannot have enough versatile wings."

McDaniels' salary is $3,333,333 in 2017.
