Jeff Van Gundy was the early frontrunner to become the next Rockets coach. Brian Windhorst of ESPN: I think circumstances have changed. Many people think John Lucas, the longtime assistant there who hasn’t been a head coach in the league in 18 years, has a chance here. And part of that is his relationship with the players and his relationship with Rafael Stone, who was just named general manager. So, while there are other candidates, including Stephen Silas, I would say today that my guess is it’s going to be John Lucas.

Jonathan Feigen: James (Harden) thinks the world of John Lucas, which, you know, who doesn’t? And obviously, working very closely with him for four years, he feels that way. And I know Russ feels that way. The whole team does. It’s john Lucas. He’s one of the icons of the league and a tremendous contributor for his work that he’s done with both just developing players.
