Brett Gunning Rumors

Mark Berman: James Harden happy that along w/ Mike D’Antoni, assistants Jeff Bzdelik,Roy Rogers & Brett Gunning will get credit they deserve working the NBA All-Star Game: “They’re unbelievable.Probably the best coaching staff,top to bottom,that I’ve ever had..They get it..They got your back”
Storyline: D'Antoni-Harden Dynamic
Former Rockets assistant coach Brett Gunning on Friday began working with Rockets players on an informal, unofficial basis, a person with knowledge of his work with the team said. Gunning will not be added officially to the Rockets coaching staff because it is so late in the season with just 11 games remaining, but is considered a top assistant coach who was a candidate to join the Rockets staff last off-season before opting to remain with the Orlando Magic. Gunning left the Magic and returned to Houston when Magic head coach Jacque Vaughn was fired last month.
Orlando will consider his possible hiring during the All-Star break next week, or could possibly wait until season’s end and do an extended search. Nevertheless, the firing of three assistant coaches Thursday – Wes Unseld Jr., Brett Gunning and Zack Guthrie – as reported by the Orlando Sentinel, suggests a new head coach could come sooner than later.
