    Cyber cod anyone? It seems weird there hasn't been an announcement confirming the signing. Or maybe we have?

    He hasn't had his first Rockets communion yet, but it's as good as done.

    The organisation is hoping that if they keep quiet enough about it, no one will actually notice.

    Why not throw some more conspiracy into it ...

    What ever happened to Stephen Silas? Is he still interviewing with Portland and GS?

    Maybe Les and Morey are having heated communication? Surely they are not on the same page. Or are they waiting for the dust to settle down after GS/OKC game 7? Got the feeling, nothing is finalized...

    It's all fake. They want Dwight to opt out.

    Is it possible it's a smokescreen and when Dwight makes his decision we bring Silas in????

    I hope there was some sort of set back that ruins the whole deal.

    Give up hope, OP. Dan Tony will be here for at least the remainder of McHale's contract.

    Better yet, maybe the lack of excitement from fans changed Les' mind?

    Yep, they are throwing it out there in the hopes that Dwight opts out ASAP

    As soon as Dwight opts out, they will hire the actual coach.

    Never trust Mauri. He is a crook.

    It's coming.

    It's always weird starting a new coaching era. We've been through extremes. We've seen exceptional defensive teams with JVG, beautiful offense with Rick, ISO ball without motion with McHale and an attempt to maintain a mess of chemistry with JB.

    One of my guys suggested that Mike D will modify the whole 7-8 Seconds Or Less approach based on our roster. It will be uptempo, but nothing like what Nashty and co. played.

    I was first disappointed with the hiring, but when I think of the alternative or going with the same methodology we've seen over the last four years, I'll take some change.

    What I do know is that the Rockets will be one of the busier teams during free agency. We are not rebuilding, but we are definitely starting over.

    Nothing can be worse than this season. I'd assume that our starting 5 will look completely new with the exception of James. He's really the only untouchable guy on our team.

    You really trust Cyber and Cod more than the NBA's official website-

    http://www.nba.com/2016/news/05/26/rockets-mike-dantoni-agree-to-four-year-deal.ap/

    If you simply Google Mike DAntoni and click on News there are about 50 other sources that state it as "finalizing"... meaning its a done deal. The contract might have to go through legal counterparts, and the team could be waiting on a press conference till they get their assistants in a row, but its done. Mike DAntoni is your Houston Rockets 2016/17 coach.

    Also Morey might want to hide this hire, but no doubt Les will want this to be paraded around as some great hire he made, and I'd be willing to guess he'll be at the press conference acting like he just hired Greg Popovich or something.

    We are not escaping this one fellow clutchfans.

    I'm hearing much the same. Trevor and Bev both likely gone.

    Also hearing Brady Heslip going to get a nice, long look.

    Chandler/Knight also possible.
