Former Rockets guard Gerald Green, who has been playing with the Rio Grande Valley Vipers since leaving Houston’s player development staff to restart his playing career, has an option to play in Puerto Rico but has not formalized an agreement. The team in Puerto Rico, Gigantes de Carolina, announced on social media Saturday that Green and the team were in agreement on a contract. But Green’s agent Kevin Martin described conversations with the team as an “opportunity he may have following the G League season.”
