Default Steve Francis to decide soon!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Point guard Steven Francis, who cleared waivers Tuesday night to become a free agent, will narrow his list of destinations from four teams to two and could sign a deal as soon as tonight, his agent said.

The Clippers, Rockets, Mavericks and Heat are all potential landing spots. Francis, who got a $30 million buyout from Portland, could go to the team that offers minutes rather than money.

Francis, 30, believes he would be most effective starting or playing 25-30 minutes a game. The Rockets and Mavericks appear set at point guard.

The Clippers and Heat could offer Francis a starting job or significant minutes at the position.


Man, I want him to the rockets.

I'd like to see him become the new Nick Van Exel in Dallas, but I don't think it'll happen.

He s first choice is the Rockets and the Rockets also want him. But the money could be a big problem.

I'd love to see him be the 6th man for the Rockets with Alston (and Lucas III) being traded away for Dan Gadzuric or someone that can take Mutumbo's job.

That's just sad, if true.

He just took a 30 million dollar buyout.

Alston (and filler) for Gadzuric. That should fix the problem. I like the idea of James and Francis job-sharing.

Dan's a hustler, that's all they need off the bench. Rasho is appreciated in Toronto, and Mohammed sucks.
