The offseason hasn't been kind to the Rockets, failing to land Chris Bosh and losing Chandler Parsons were both blows to the future plans of Houston. With the prized free agents taken care of, the attention of the off-season turns to the bench players around the National Basketball Association.
The Houston Chronicle's Jonathan Feigen tweeted yesterday that the Rockets are hoping to resign small forward/shooting guard Francisco Garcia:
That's their plan and his, but no agreement on deal yet RT @rjanssen37: @Jonathan_Feigen is it ture that the rockets re sign fransico garcia— Jonathan Feigen (@Jonathan_Feigen) August 14, 2014
Garcia made into 55 games for the Rockets last season, including four starts. Garcia's main two assets are three point shooting and length, toughness on the defense side. But, there are questions about what Garcia has left in the tank at 33-years old.
There are also reports that Jordan Hamilton has signed a contract with the Toronto Raptors, as first reported by Shams Charania:

Hamilton, a product out of the University of Texas, was a trade deadline acquisition from the Nuggets for Aaron Brooks. Hamilton played 21 games with the Rockets, making one start - he averaged 16.6 minutes, 6.6 points, 2.9 rebound, and 0.9 assists per game.
