The Houston Rockets are bringing back Stevie Francis for a return engagement. Francis began his career well with the Rockets before moving on. He played in 44 games (30 starts) for the Knicks and he averaged 28.1 minutes, 11.3 points, 3.6 rebounds, 3.9 assists and 0.9 steals per game. He shot 40.8% from the floor, 37.8% from three point range and 82.9% from the free throw line.
Francis has now played in 566 NBA games (540 starts) in his career and he has averaged 37.9 minutes, 18.4 points, 5.6 rebounds, 6.1 assists and 1.5 steals per game. He has shot 42.9% from the floor, 34.3% from three point range and 79.9% from the free throw line. If Francis is healthy, which he wasn’t last season, he will help the Rockets at guard big-time.
