Chron.com: Steve Francis, who has gone from the “Franchise” to a free agent, could be ready to bring his career back to where it began.
Hours after Francis agreed to have his contract bought out by the Portland Trail Blazers, his agent, Jeff Fried, began talks with several teams — including the Rockets — to find him a home.
“There is no secret Steve has a strong affinity for Houston and for the Houston Rockets,” Fried said. “We’re talking to a number of teams. Steve has some thinking to do.”
Fried said Francis, 30, is considering the Rockets, Mavericks, Heat, Lakers and Clippers, all of whom he said have shown interest or have been receptive to pursuing Francis.
The Rockets have five point guards under contract (not including Bob Sura, who is expected to retire.) But Fried said that if the team reshapes its roster through a trade, there could be a place for Francis in Houston.
