    C'mon, Tilman, don't just sit there. Make a move!

    Seriously, what's the hold up? By now he and Stone have got to know who their choice is. It makes me wonder if Tilman's trying to low-ball someone on the amount of the contract.

    Anyone have an inkling of what's going on behind the scenes?

    Rockets coaching search right now.....

    76ers hire Rivers, Joerger!
    Clippers hire Lue, Billups, Atkinson!, Drew, Craig.
    Pelicans hire SVG.
    Nets hire Nash, MDA? Vaughn.

    Meanwhile, #Tilman is fiddle farting around and ran off Morey.

    The league is having a meeting today I think about the state of the start of the season.

    After this meeting the league will have a more clear ideas regarding the start of the season and other details.

    And we will hire Silas soon.

    Rockets can wait to hire a coach ... because they have no draft picks?!

    Since the Rockets don’t have any picks in the NBA’s Nov. 18 draft, they don’t have the incentive to install a coach as quickly as other teams. ESPN’s Brian Windhorst explains:

    "They’re not any sort of time pressure [to make a hire], since they don’t have a pick in this draft. It’s not like he has to work draft workouts."

    Morey is sticking around through Nov. 1 in a short-term advisory role to assist with the coaching search, which seems to indicate that the Rockets plan to conclude it by then. That date arrives a week from Sunday.

    don’t have to hire Lucas, he’s already here. It’s the only reason he’s a contender. It’s an easy transition and a low cost option.

    Tilman strategy is pretty simple.

    Wait until the expensive coaches get snatched up and wait until all teams have a coach to conveniently forced to find a cheap coach who has no negotiating power. #ArtOfTheDeal

    Assuming competency...

    They've already done the deal with whoever. Just can't imagine why it should still be a secret? I mean it's not a good look while you still have to remind yourself Stone is the GM and not Morey. Some dramatic reveal on draft night? JVG hour long special taking his talents to South...east Texas?

    If it's done then announce it.

    I'm going to go ahead and just put $5 down and take the Vegas odds on Patrick Fertitta becoming the next Rockets coach...just to be on the safe side.

    I’d prefer him to John Lucas. Atleast it’s blatantly funny. Lucas is a good guy and it’s sad that he’s going to be a mediocre coach for us.

    The Rockets owner is going to announce new coach hiring on Nov.3 election day since none is going to pay attention to the hiring during that time.
