Default Any news on Steve Francis?

Is there any news of Steve Franchise??

He hasn't said a word since he was waived, and I really like to know what his next team is.

Last we heard, portland was buying out his contract and the Clips were looking to add him. That was quite a while ago though.

Yeah, he was never waived. There was talk of a buy out, but since nothing's actually gone down, it could just be more rumors.

They'd be stupid to buy him out now. If they really wanted to buy him out (and I still can't for the life of me figure out why), they should at least let him play until closer to the buy out deadline like Philly and Memphis did with Eddie Jones and Chris Webber last year.

They'll probably find that he's worth keeping.

Why do they want Francis? He's gonna be a 2nd string player because Cassell and Mobley are gonna start.

He might start at PG. And will for sure when Cassell is injured.

Depth maybe? Considering right now, behind Cat and Sammy all we have is Livingston and an RFA[Conroy] along with two people who hold rights too[Diaz/Jordan].

Why would he? He's made a ton of money as it is, gets to reunite with his best friend, and have a chance to come in and turn his career around.

What I learned was that he would possibly be released by the Portland Trailblazers and sign a contract with Clippers whose PGs are either too old(Cassell) or too painful(Livingston) to play.

If he is released, possible chance that he goes to the Clippers(Who knew?), or the Rockets.

Rockets will need to get rid of some Point Guards if so.
