Houston Rockets guard Austin Rivers will enter unrestricted free agency after declining his 2020-21 player option with the Rockets, per Marc J. Spears of The Undefeated.

The Rockets, who are dealing with James Harden and Russell Westbrook's trade requests, have to decide if they want to bring Rivers back or let him walk.

Austin Rivers appeared in 68 games for the Rockets in 2019-20. He averaged 8.8 points, 2.6 rebounds and 1.7 assists while shooting 42.1 percent from the field, 35.6 percent from beyond the arc and 70.3 percent from the free-throw line.

In the 2020 playoffs against the Oklahoma City Thunder and Los Angeles Lakers, Rivers put up 4.8 points and 1.3 assists in 12 games at Walt Disney World in the NBA bubble. The Rockets lost to the Lakers in the Western Conference Semifinals in five games. Mike D'Antoni decided not to return as head coach and Daryl Morey stepped down from his general manager post.

The Rockets hired Stephen Silas as their new head coach. Silas must be wondering what he got himself into, though. Both Harden and Westbrook have requested trades and now Rivers may be looking to leave Clutch City as well.

The Philadelphia 76ers have been linked to Rivers since his dad, Doc Rivers, is the new head coach and Morey is running the front office.

It's going to be interesting to see where Rivers lands. He has career NBA averages of 9.2 points, 2.1 rebounds and 2.3 assists with the New Orleans Pelicans, Los Angeles Clippers, Washington Wizards and Rockets.
