Francisco Garcia has signed a one-year deal with the Rockets, according to his agent, Aaron Goodwin.

Goodwin denied the report of a Garcia-Rockets, two-year agreement last week, so the two parties went with a short-term deal instead. He'll join a team with a bit less depth than last year, but he's not a lock for consistent minutes.

Aaron Goodwin, agent for Francisco Garcia, said on Friday that the report of his client agreeing to deal with Rockets is false.

"There's no agreement reached," Goodwin said. Garcia was reportedly signed for a two-year deal, but this report is more than enough to suggest he's still a free agent. He'll be looking at a short-term deal and a team like the Jazz could be an option for Garcia.

The Rockets have re-signed Francisco Garcia.

It's a two-year, $3.5 million deal for Garcia. He was out of the rotation for a sizable portion of the season, but he did play 22.8 minutes per game in April while the Rockets were banged up. He'll compete for minutes with Alonzo Gee on the wing.

The Houston Rockets intend to re-sign unrestricted free agent Francisco Garcia, according to Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle

In answering a Twitter follower's question about Garcis, Feigen said both the team and Garcia are planning on a reunion but haven't come to an agreement yet. Garcia averaged 5.7 points, 1.3 three-pointers, 2.2 rebounds, and 1.1 assists in 54 games with the Rockets last year and would hold little fantasy value as a bench player with Houston or any other team.

Francisco Garcia is getting interest from the Rockets.

His agent said Garcia is looking to play for a championship-caliber team like Houston. The Jazz are also interested in Garcia, so Garcia probably won't be signing with them any time soon. He'll be a backup on the Rockets and would spend time on the wing.

The Jazz could look to add Francisco Garcia, according to the Salt Lake Tribune.

They are reportedly looking to add a shooter or a point guard. If the Jazz do not add a shooter, it will serve as confidence in rookie Rodney Hood, who was impressive in summer league. Garcia probably wouldn't see significant minutes with Utah.
Jul 19 - 9:35 AM

According to Chris Haynes, the Jazz, Hornets, Nets and Rockets are all interested in free agent swingman Francisco Garcia.

Garcia has proved to be a decent role player and is capable of the occasional big game, but there's no reason to think he'll be worth drafting in standard fantasy leagues, regardless of where he lands.
Jul 8 - 11:24 PM

Francisco Garcia has opted out of his contract with the Rockets and will be an unrestricted free agent.

The move was expected and the Rockets have to be happy about Garcia opting out to give them more cap space. It's possible he will return, but the Rockets aren't going to be chomping at the bit to bring him back due to how often he misses games due to injury.
Jun 30 - 9:19 AM

Francisco Garcia will not play vs. the Pelicans on Wednesday.

The Rockets are short on players tonight and we may get to see some serious run out of Troy Daniels and Omri Casspi. Garcia's DNP will likely be more precautionary than anything.
Apr 16 - 8:08 PM

Francisco Garcia (back) played 14 minutes against the Spurs on Monday with two points and three boards.

He missed Saturday's game due to a back injury and was a game-time call tonight. Garcia won't have much opportunity while Chandler Parsons and James Harden are active.
Apr 14 - 11:18 PM

Francisco Garcia said he will play against the Spurs on Monday.

The Rockets will be close to full strength while the Spurs will not. Garcia won't have much of a chance to shine with Chandler Parsons (wrist, hip) good to go. He's not a fantasy option.
Apr 14 - 7:01 PM

Francisco Garcia will be a true game-time decision on Monday due to a back injury.

He's too risky to use in any fantasy leagues right now, but could end up having some decent silly-season production if he's able to go tonight.
Apr 14 - 6:28 PM

Francisco Garcia (back) went through Monday's shootaround and he may return to action vs. the Spurs.

Garcia is averaging 24 minutes per game in March but his role fluctuates from night to night, and he doesn't get enough statistics to be worth a roster spot in average fantasy leagues.
Apr 14 - 12:04 PM

Francisco Garcia (back) will not play against the Pelicans on Saturday.

He's dealing with a lower back issues and is hoping to be back on Monday vs. the Spurs. Omri Casspi is getting the start tonight and should see a nice chunk of minutes. Expect to see a lot of Jordan Hamilton, as well.
