D’Antoni on the Hot Seat?


Is Mike D’Antoni’s Tenure in Houston Coming to an End?

With GM Daryl Morey looking to wheel and deal, placing all players and picks reportedly on the trade block, it should come as no surprise to hear that a coaching change may be coming soon, too. Entering the last year of his contract, the Rockets have ended talks with D’Antoni regarding a contract extension.

D’Antoni’s agent, Warren LeGerie, informed Morey of the coach’s decision Thursday afternoon, resulting in talks ending. D’Antoni, coming off of three successful years that included four Western Conference series victories, a conference finals appearance and an NBA coach of the year award, expected an extension by now, based off of his results.

With the Rockets franchise in flux, he probably senses that it is time to leave. Granted, should the Rockets go on to shakeup their roster and have a success 2019/20 campaign, it isn’t out of the question for D’Antoni to return. At 68, he has said that he hopes to coach for at least three more years.

“I’ve let Daryl and owner Tilman Fertitta know that I’m energized to keep coaching- and believe I can continue to do this at a high-level for at least another three years,” he recently said.  “I want to be part of a championship here.”

The recent loss to the Kevin Durant-less Golden State Warriors has clearly caused severe implications in the Rockets franchise; the team could look a lot different next season.
