The Lakers have been in contact with Francisco Garcia's representative, according to a league source. There is "mutual interest"

Last year the word was "imminent" now the words are "mutual interest"

Good. We're after feisty shooters. Still waiting for "Lakers interested in Anthony Morrow and Dorrell Wright".

Francisco can shoot and isn't a bad defender from what I remember; he is a need we need to be filled and upgraded at desperately.

Not young, but still has game, if other options are exhausted I wouldn't mind him for the minimum.

Another player that I'd take for the bench. Finally we're looking in the right direction: SG/SF, shooters, somewhat athletic.

i like both him and delfino. i also like that the lakers are trying to poach some of houston's more valuable players from last year to prevent them from going back there and signing with dwight. part of the pitch: hey, we just signed the guy who was statistically their second best player last year...still want to go there?

A few years too late, but Garcia would do the Matt Barnes stuff for this team. I've been a fan for years.

I don't know. Garcia is a bit of a scumbag, in a good way.

I wanted him on the team during his Sac days, but I think it's too late. Maybe if the price is right.

He's only 31. I would think of him kind of like a Battier type circa Battier's days in Houston.

Like him if it's for the minimum. Would take him as our backup over Matt Barnes.

Garcia was shooting lights out against OKC in the playoff. Not sure if he was always that hot.

Would really like him on the team but he played really well in the playoffs so he might be out of our price range.

According to an NBA source, the Knicks are pursuing Rockets free agent small forward Francisco Garcia and former Knick Matt Barnes. The Knicks traded small forward Steve Novak in the Bargnani deal and are not confident they can re-sign forward Chris Copeland.

The source said the 6-foot-7 Garcia, who was born in the Dominican Republic but grew up in The Bronx, has interest in joining the Knicks. He averaged 10.7 points in the playoffs for the Rockets, who didn’t renew his option. (He also played with the Kings last season).
