Francisco Garcia And The Houston Rockets Have Mutual Interest In A Return

Francisco Garcia is considering the Houston Rockets amongst other teams that have interest in signing the SG/SF, according to his agent, Aaron Goodwin.

Goodwin spoke with Jonathan Feigen (Houston Chronicle) about Garcia and the Rockets.

“We’ve talked about him,” Goodwin said of conversations with the Rockets. “Francisco is just looking for the opportunity to continue to play toward a championship. We’re looking through his options, seeing what would be the best opportunities for him. He definitely has interest in the Rockets.”

Garcia averaged 5.7 points in 55 games this season, struggling with several injuries and inconsistent playing time.

The sharpshooter was expected to be a big contributor off the Rockets bench last season, but shot just 35.8% from beyond the arc, and played sparingly in the playoff series against the Portland Trail Blazers.

The Rockets signed Garcia to a 2-year, $2.6 million deal last offseason with a $1.3 million player option this year. Garcia opted out of his deal hoping to find another multi-year contract with another team or back in Houston.

The 32-year old is expected to make a decision within the next few weeks.
