    The Rockets have not narrowed their list, despite the follow-up interviews, to a group of finalists, and Stone could opt to interview additional candidates, an individual familiar with the team’s thinking said.

    Rockets director of player personnel John Lucas is also being strongly considered, according to another person with knowledge of the process so far.

    Though Morey did not make his decision to step down public until Thursday and has been involved in the interviews with candidates to succeed Mike D’Antoni as Rockets coach, each of the coaches had been informed throughout the process that Morey expected to leave the team at some point this offseason.

    In Stone we trust I guess... Im really skeptical about JVG and Lucas and i cant help but to think Moreys mid life crisis is whats caused this hold up in our coaching search while the top candidates got signed.

    No one going to post this article? Don’t we have a Clutch fund or something for thirsty fans?

    He's been involved with the Rockets for a long time I believe. He's much like Gersson Rosas or Monte McNair.

    edit: Sam Hinkie too!

    Rafael Stone will schedule the interviews and be the front man so that Tilman Fertitta can pick whoever the hell he wants to be head coach.

    Yup and nothing any of us can do about it. It may be time to take a step back about caring so much about the Rockets.
