Despite having only a 27.3% chance to pick that high, the Houston Rockets defied the odds in Tuesday’s NBA draft lottery to keep their 2021 first-round selection by obtaining the No. 2 overall pick.

Now, with the draft slot finalized, the debate can begin as to what Houston should do with such a prized asset. One path could involve a trade, which general manager Rafael Stone indicated is a possibility.

However, if they keep the pick, there’s no shortage of quality choices. Evan Mobley, Jalen Suggs, and Jalen Green appear to be the most likely candidates to go No. 2 overall, but even presumed No. 1 frontrunner Cade Cunningham can’t be ruled out — since Detroit appears poised to explore all of its options at the top of the 2021 draft.

Could Stone and the Rockets trade up to No. 1? After all, they have a significant amount of future draft capital to potentially use as incentive. Or, if they stay at No. 2, what’s the most likely outcome? Courtesy of our friends at PickUp, here’s an early look at the relevant draft props.
