Report: Rockets deciding between Lue and Van GundyOctober 13, 2020 | 08:20 AM
The Rockets have reportedly zeroed in on Tyronn Lue and Jeff Van Gundy as their preferred head coaching candidates.
Analysis: The Clippers are also interested in Lue, and he has support from the players both in Los Angeles and Houston. The Rockets could attempt to extend an official head coaching offer to Lue before the Clippers complete their coaching search, but that's unlikely to happen until they officially interview Van Gundy. Van Gundy is a favorite amongst Houston ownership, and being able to coach in Houston (and not uproot his family), is something that appeals to him. It sounds like we'll have an official decision here relatively soon.
