Gerald Green missed the whole season due to a season-ending surgery last October, and he was traded for salary reasons in the blockbuster deal that brought Robert Covington to Houston.
According to Kelly Iko of The Athletic, the veteran forward remains in Houston, as he recovers from his injury. The report suggests that Green is hoping to re-sign with the Rockets.
(via USA Today Sports):
“Free agent Gerald Green has been training privately in Houston as he ramps up his recovery, in hopes of a Rockets return, league sources told The Athletic. It’s been over a year since Green last played an NBA game, missing the entire season with a broken foot before being included in the multi-team trade that sent Robert Covington to Houston. Green was waived by the Denver Nuggets and has remained in Houston ever since February.”
Green is known for his three-point shot in the later stages of his career. On his two seasons in Houston, the experienced swingman is averaging 10.3 points shooting 36 percent from beyond the arc.
