Gerald Green to return to Rockets on one-year deal

It’s official! GreenLight is coming back!

NBA: Playoffs-Houston Rockets at Golden State Warriors Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, Gerald Green will return to the Rockets next season on a one-year deal.

The Houston native will return for his third straight season with the Rockets and will look to add some depth and 3-point scoring off the bench.

Green averaged 9.2 points per game last season in 73 games with the Rockets, becoming one of the top scoring options off the bench.

Green’s playoffs were not as shiny and smooth as he would have wanted, but he brings major energy off the bench and a sense of community with the city.

I can’t imagine many fans would be disappointed, and the move’s timing coming minutes after the 5 PM CT start time shows that the organization is really excited to bring Green back.

Welcome back, Gerald Green!
