05:45 PM ET 05.06 | Though it's unlikely the team will exercise its $6.4 million option on him for next season, Houston Rockets small forward Francisco Garcia says he'd like to return to the team next season if possible. Houston has substantial cap space this summer coming off an encouraging showing during the 2012-13 season, but Garcia likely won't fit into the team's plans at that price. Still, after being acquired from the Sacramento Kings in a midseason deal, Garcia says he enjoyed his brief time with the organization. "I like it here. They like me here. We???ll see what happens. You know how it is. This is a business," Garcia said. "For me right now, it???s not about waiting. I???m happy here." An eight-year veteran, Garcia averaged 6.4 points and 1.3 rebounds in 18 games with Houston this season. During the Rockets' playoff series against OKC, he upped his play with 10.7 points per contest.

Rockets are very close to bring a legit contender.

Garcia is a good pick up if the price is not high. But he is sort of a liability on defense. And they already have Harden, Lin in the same category.
