Sources told ESPN.com that D’Antoni, currently serving as associate head coach with the Philadelphia 76ers, was summoned for a second sit-down with the club — this time face-to-face with Rockets owner Leslie Alexander — after impressing in his first interview. The Rockets, sources say, would seek to hire a coach with strong defensive credentials, to essentially serve as D’Antoni’s defensive coordinator, if talks progress to a serious stage and D’Antoni eventually emerges as Houston’s choice to replace Kevin McHale and interim successor J.B. Bickerstaff.
