Second-year Rockets shooting guard Jalen Green and fourth-year point guard Kevin Porter Jr. are among Houston’s best value contracts this season, according to HoopsHype’s Global Rating metric.

Global Rating is the metric HoopsHype uses to track the performance of basketball players all around the world. Created by Alberto De Roa, it combines players’ and teams’ statistics to rank players according to their productivity on the court. The amount of games a player has missed in a certain season or competition is also factored in. A more extensive explanation is available here.

In a recent post, HoopsHype ranked the best performers this season relative to how much money they are making.

Among players making between $5 million and $10 million this season, Jalen Green ($9.4 million) ranked as the fourth-best value, trailing only Brooklyn’s Nic Claxton and Cleveland’s Evan Mobley and Darius Garland. Green came in slightly ahead of two fellow 2021 draftees, Toronto’s Scottie Barnes and Orlando’s Franz Wagner.

Meanwhile, Porter ($3.2 million) came in as the third-best value among players making under $5 million — though it should be noted that Porter will be getting a sizable raise in time for the 2023-24 NBA season, thanks to his recent contract extension.

Second-year center Alperen Sengun ($3.4 million) finished at No. 10 on that same list of players making under $5 million.

The complete list of best contract values across the league is available here. Keep in mind that HoopsHype’s Global Rating metric is updated regularly based on a number of factors, so the individual player rankings may shift slightly, depending on the time of viewing.
