    No I think it’s permanent.

    The only way Atkinson comes here is as an Assistant Coach

    I'm guessing Lucas or Silas. Looks like getting ready for a rebuild

    Silas will have us playing efficient offense and team ball.

    Lucas will be more of the same.

    I also think it’s very telling that Silas was the first candidate called back for 2nd interview after this whole Morey situation.

    I thought technically JVG was the 2nd interview. He interviewed on Wednesday and talks continued into Thursday. I guess maybe that's not considered a "2nd interview".

    I don’t think that any of the three finalists would make Morey quit. It would have to be a name out of left field full of controversy like Mark Jackson or a coach out of left field that will want full roster control like Popovich. I think the hire is one of the three finalists and I think Morey would have been okay with any of them, obviously Lucas the least but not enough to quit over.

    No its not, its telling that Lucas was at the forefront after Morey resigned. Morey wanted Silas over Dantoni.

    When I moved to North Carolina I kept an eye on the Hornets and Bobcats when Paul Silas coached them. He struck me as a true stand up guy--a mentor type coach. I can't say he was a great coach, but he was warm and friendly with the media and represented the city well. Hiring his son at this point in his career would be a risk, but if the players are okay with him, and he and the new GM are on the same page, I think the Rockets could do a lot worse.

    Atkinson would bring some energy to the sidelines, and JVG perhaps a little spunk and fight, but I'm not sure how either of them would mesh with James, especially if we're not winning. John Lucas has coached some terrible teams but, watching him during timeouts, it's obvious the players respect and listen to him, so there's that...

    we are 100% blowing it up trade deadline or next season. Its inevitable by Morey leaving. if he thought we could win a championship dont u think he he would stay? Team is about to implode

    Hire this man. He's the best option available now. He learned from some of the best, coached on teams with some of the best players currently in the league who love him, and despite his young age, if you don't count broadcasting, actually has more NBA experience than JVG. I love JVG, but I love the Rockets more.

    If he ends up sucking, you didn't see this.

    The only problem is that he'll be working for Tilman, so it'll probably be a disaster, but let's overlook that for now!

    MDA Rockets had top 6 defense in 2 out of 4 postseasons with 2 different defensive assistants.

    This narrative about MDA not caring about defense is played out.

    Wait... are you saying Morey wanted Silas? I thought Morey wanted D'Antoni, and if not him, JVG. Where did you read he wanted Silas?
