THE BRONX - Bronx native Francisco Garcia is making a strong showing in the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas, recently helping the Sacramento Kings squash the Washington Wizards.

Garcia hit a three-pointer early on in the game and proved he could also run the floor. The former Taft hoops star ended the game with 21 points. The Kings won 75-64.

Garcia has been released from Summer League action to deal with family-related issues, but said he's looking forward to playing under new head coach Reggie Theus.

Theus was the assistant coach at Louisville, where Garcia played his college ball.
