Gerald Green is staying home.

The Houston native — who relished playing for the Rockets — is going to be back for at least one more season after reaching a fast deal with the team in free agency, reports Shams Charania of The Vertical at Yahoo Sports.

Green scored 12.1 points per game and shot 36.9 percent from three last season — he was solid overall. At this point in his career Green is what he is: A streaky scorer capable of huge plays and big nights, but also rough ones, and sometimes he gets played off the floor due to his defense or matchups. That said, he can knock down threes and we know Mike D’Antoni likes that.

At this price, it’s a good signing for the Rockets. It’s not a game changer, but he can play a role and loves doing it in his hometown.
