After Luke Walton turned the primary head coach to get fired this NBA season, the dominoes could also be beginning to fall round the remainder of the league too.
Bleacher Report’s Jake Fischer reported on Wednesday that the Houston Rockets are weighing the way forward for coach Stephen Silas. The Rockets are actually 1-16 on the yr, and Fischer provides that Silas’ teaching efficiency has been criticized across the NBA, notably his “disorganized and undisciplined” offense. Rockets assistant coach John Lucas could be the possible interim alternative if Silas is in the end dismissed, the report notes.
The Rockets have been anticipated to be unhealthy this season, and the truth that they’re rebuilding is all however blatantly apparent. Simply take a look at the way in which that the crew has been dealing with veteran John Wall. Below Silas, although, the Rockets have been not simply unhealthy, however horrific. They’re now a comical 18-71 (.202) in Silas’ two seasons and are on an energetic 15-game dropping streak, making them the worst crew within the league.
In equity to Silas, he inherited a tough scenario. He signed on as coach of the Rockets late final yr solely to have the rug pulled out from beneath him when James Harden, Russell Westbrook and GM Daryl Morey all skipped city inside days or even weeks of Silas’ hiring. The NBA is an unsympathetic enterprise, even when Silas appears to be well-liked across the league.
