    He can't do any worse than he did last year.

    Cisco is the man, but what a sad state of affairs if true.

    Nah, I think a two-year veteran's minimum deal for Garcia would be about $2.8 million.

    My GUESS is that the Rockets agreed to pay Garcia more in Year 1 in exchange for either/both of (a) opting out of his last contract to give the Rockets more cap room this summer and/or (b) giving the Rockets a non-guaranteed second year.

    We'll just have to wait and see what the contract actually looks like--including whether news of this signing is even true--before we can make an informed judgment.

    I think he was injured a good part of last year and it affected his shot for the rest of the season.

    Any chance that higher first year amount is to facilitate a SnT, and that's why this hasn't been announced by the media?

    Him and Casspi were a no show last year

    Don't care for him, but he seems like he is a good bench cheerleader

    Apparently he isn't done sitting on a bench making a few million

    Probably not. Sign-and-trade deals must be for at least THREE years (although only the first season needs to be guaranteed).

    Thanks. I'd be surprised if Cisco wasn't receptive to a 3rd non-guaranteed year, especially if he's getting paid more up front.

    I'd rather have cap flexibility.

    If Cisco is back on the team, well....My wife and I are very pious due to Cisco, let's put it that way.

    For example, when Francisco Garcia checks into a game:

    My wife and I: [in unison] Oh, God.....

    Then me, hopefully many years later, trying to b.s. my way into heaven:

    Angel at Pearly Gates (looking at register): You mean to tell me that every time you yelled "JEE-SUS CHRIST" during a Rockets game, you were praying?

    Me: Okay, look, you got me, I'm sorry, but tell God, You can probably discount half of those "JEE-SUS CHRIST"s because they were because Francisco Garcia was clanking shots off the rim. AND HE WOULDN'T QUIT SHOOTING.

    Angel: Why wouldn't he quit shooting?

    Me: Because Kevin McHale was coach..

    Angel: Oh, wow. McHale the coach and Garcia as backup wing player. That's right, I forgot about that. Okay, you've already gone through Hell. Come on in. OPEN THE GATE!

    That's kind of good to know.
