HOUSTON -- Veteran guard Steve Francis is heading back to
the town where he spent his first five N-B-A seasons.
According to his agent, Francis has agreed to a deal with the
Houston Rockets, who traded him to Orlando in 2004 as part of a
multiplayer deal that brought Tracy McGrady to Houston.
He was sent to the Knicks in early 2006 and played for them
until he was traded to Portland last month in a draft-night deal.
The Trail Blazers bought out his contract for a reported 30 (m)
million dollars last week, making him an unrestricted free agent.
