One name to watch, however, is Rio Grande Valley Vipers head coach Mahmoud Abdelfattah. Sources told The Athletic that he is considered a strong candidate for one of the open assistant jobs. Abdelfattah is coming off a G League Finals win and has great relationships with Silas and the organization. Thursday’s scene at Wintrust Arena featured Chuck Hayes, Silas, Abdelfattah and Ed Pinckney watching scrimmages, with general manager Rafael Stone and assistant GM Eli Witus making the rounds. Abdelfattah has been with the franchise dating back to the days of Mike D’Antoni and is highly respected by members of the Rockets and Vipers. “There’s great communication between me and the coaching staff up in Houston, between me and the front office,” he told me last month. “And they provide as much support as we need in order to be successful.”
Former Rockets power forward and fan favorite Chuck Hayes has returned to the team as pro player personnel scout. Hayes, who held a similar position with the Denver Nuggets last season, will continue to evaluate NBA and other players for the Rockets with some work in player development, Rockets vice president Gersson Rosas said. “We value him not only as a player, but his profile and his background is extremely valuable to what we do on the personnel side,” Rosas said. “He’s a guy who has a different perspective. We see a guy with a lot of talent, a lot of character and a lot of upside in terms of his role in the front office.”
