After the expiration of D'Antoni’s contract, the candidates for the rocket’s new coach have been pending. During this period, the former general manager Morey has resigned, and the new general manager Rafael Stone is responsible for the selection of the coach.
Popular candidates for the Rockets coach before include Jeff Van Gundy, Lone Ranger assistant Stephen Silas and current team assistant John Lucas. Fegan further narrowed the scope to two people.
"I really think at this point, it will be Jeff Van Gundy or Stephen Silas. John Lucas was and is a candidate for the (Rockets coach), and it is a very good one they consider very seriously. Candidates. However, I still think these two (Little Van Gundy/Selas).
“我真的认为此时将是杰夫·范甘迪或斯蒂芬·西拉斯。约翰·卢卡斯曾经是并且一直是（火箭教练）候选人，这是他们非常认真地考虑的一个很好的候选人。候选人。但是，我仍然认为这两个（Little Van Gundy / Selas）。
Van Gundy coached the Rockets for four years in 2003-07, when Yao Ming was still playing for the Rockets. After being fired by the Rockets, Van Gundy began his professional commentary career and has yet to coach an NBA team again.
