Reports: Francisco Garcia agrees to two-year deal with Houston

By Royce Young | NBA writer

The Rockets have landed the big fish, so now they're looking to fill in the gaps.

According to multiple reports, the Rockets have agreed to sign Francisco Garcia on a two-year deal worth $2.6 million. The second year is a player option.

Garcia, who spent the last half of last season with Houston after being traded there from Sacramento, was waived before the beginning of free agency to make room for other signings, like Dwight Howard. Now that that's wrapped up, the Rockets are replacing some of those holes and bringing Garcia back is a very good start.

The 32-year-old shooting guard played somewhat sporadically during the regular season, but saw an increased role in the postseason, specifically in being a pest guarding Kevin Durant. He spaced the floor very well as a shooter, and was a very strong bench contributor.

In the six-game series against the Thunder, Garcia averaged 10.7 points and hit almost 46 percent from 3, seeing his minutes climb by about 10 per game compared to the regular season.

Garcia averaged 6.4 points and shot 38.6 percent from 3 in 18 games with the Rockets.
