    I love Cisco but he was complete chit on the offensive end

    I see the Cavs may give him a shot.

    Much better!

    Shved is another ball handler that we need

    Francisco will be missed for sure. Solid locker room guy for us. we just lost two very good 3 pt shooters, Garcia by his history

    I just beat some Rockets fan's scrub ass in 2k14. Garcia went off on Parsons. My tribute to him.

    CISCO KID FOREVER!!!

    Sorry to hear, he was a badass. But I have a hard time visualizing any future use for him so I'm not totally shocked.

    Beyond the bone head fouls out of nowhere and the terrible 3-point shooting, I thought his toughness and defense contributed to winning. I'll miss him.

    this is by far the best news of the day. garcia had his moments his first year with the rockets but the last two season and especially so far this season he was just taking up a roster spot and never did anything remotely positive on the court

    Glad he's gone. Good guy from all accounts, but a dud on the court.

    Glad he got cut. He was probably the most useless person on the roster. Wish him well though

    Liked him as a person, hated him when he played offense for us. Total poop on that end. I wish the dude luck tho. I'll never forget what he did in the 2013 playoffs. Dude looked like prime Ray Allen out there, hitting every 3 he sniped. Oh and I can't forget the death stare he gave CP3! Good times!

    Don't write him off yet. He may end up returning to the Rockets next year.

    Cisco should probably just start coaching. He keeps getting hurt and when he does play, the jump shot isn't there. His joints are probably in pretty rough shape.

    I'm glad we have memories of his birthday song. Thanks Cisco
