Could the Houston Rockets be looking to bring back a former player?
Free agent veteran forward Josh Smith recently worked out with Rockets players James Harden and Chris Paul, according to David Astramskas of Ballislife.com.
Smith, 31, signed a three-month, $1.5 million deal with the Sichuan Blue Whales of the Chinese Basketball Association last season and averaged 18.8 points, 10.6 rebounds, and 2.0 blocks in 26 games.

It’s unclear if the workout will lead to anything between Smith and Houston, who played for the Rockets during the 2014-2015 season and part of the 2015-2016 season, but with the team’s aggression in the offseason it is possible they could see Smith as a valuable bench addition.
