Steve Francis returns to Houston Rockets

Steve Francis is returning to where his professional basketball career began — the Houston Rockets.

Francis, a six-foot-three point guard, spent the first five years of his NBA career with Houston, where he garnered the nickname "Stevie Franchise," before being traded to Orlando in 2004 as part of a multi-player deal that brought Tracy McGrady to the Rockets.

Known equally for his quickness off the dribble and perceived selfishness on the court, Francis is coming off a tough season with the Knicks, which saw him struggle with injuries and average a career-low 11.3 points per game.

Over his eight year career, Francis has averaged 18.4 points and 6.1 assists per game.
