NBA News: Mike D'Antoni Leaving Rockets + Rumors On The Future of James Harden & Russell Westbrook

NBA Rumors & News are buzzing after Mike D’Antoni informed the Rockets that he will not be returning as their head coach next season. D’Antoni instead will test the open market and has already been linked to the 76ers, Pelicans and Pacers as all three NBA teams are looking for a new head coach. The Chicago Bulls are also continuing their coaching search. D’Antoni has no plans to retire which begs the question of where he’ll coach next NBA season.

Houston Rockets Rumors are swirling following D’Antoni’s exit as the future of the franchise is at a crossroads. Russell Westbrook and James Harden are owed over $130 million dollars each over the next 3 seasons leaving Houston with not much wiggle room in terms of improving the roster. Will Rockets’ GM Darryl Morey finally blow up this roster and start over? The Rockets are reportedly interested in hiring Clippers’ assistant coach Tyronn Lue.
