Whenever the 2020-21 NBA season tips off there will be a new person sitting in the head coach’s seat in Houston.
In a statement to the four letter network, the now former Rockets head coach said this:
It’s with tremendous sadness and gratitude that my wife Laurel and I announce that our incredible journey in Houston has ended for now and that we’ll be moving to a new chapter.
Mike D’Antoni informed the Rockets that he is entering free agency and would not be returning to the team next season , according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.
The decision rips the proverbial speculation that has been swirling around the head coach’s future status with the Rockets since their outster from last year’s playoffs.
While this settles the D’Antoni question, this does add to the list of decisions the team must make moving forward. Rockets GM Daryl Morey has been known for making aggressive moves to try to shake up and improve the roster.
