    It's weird Hollins' name is not part of that. So you are telling me he will accept an assistant job while not even getting considered for HC? I'm starting to believe if we hire Silas, it won't be with Hollins though 90% sure D'Antoni will be hired and this is all bull.

    Maybe Adrian can help recruit his son Blake when he hits free agency.

    Editted that list to include Messina but yeah I didn't see anything anywhere about Hollins getting an interview.

    Supposedly Silas and Hollins have the same agent and Hollins could follow Silas.

    I didn't mean you omitted him, Rockets were only reportedly interested but officially nothing seemed to have happened with Hollins.

    Well I guess the agents are pushing for this, but not sure Hollins is on board. Nobody has reported that actually Hollins would take the assistant job so it seems to be a lot of bs.

    Never thought Adrian Griffin would be a coach when he was a player. Not sure why, just didn't think so.

    Talk about scraping the bottom of the barrel. I'm all for giving up and coming coaches a shot but WTF! JVG is who we need and the fact that he's not even in consideration tells me all I need to know about the thinking of Les and Morey. Bend over and cater to Harden. We need a coach that is gonna hold Harden accountable not someone who is gonna bow down to his Beardness. It's hard to be optimistic with this clowns running the show.

    James Harden will pick our Coach not Les or Morey the organization is buying time for something. The reason Dantoni is not hired yet has to be even James does not want him.

    My HAWT TAK of the day: Les wants to hear "That run to the WCF shows how much potential this team has. With me as coach, I can tap that potential and make you a serious contender for the next two years."

    What he's hearing (more respectfully than this): "That run to the WCF was a result of you getting hot at the right time. You're closer to a 1 and Done team than a WCFinalist. It took years to create this poor team chemistry and defense and it will take me years to undue it. Also, we need a roster overhaul."

    Les: "Next!"
