The Houston Rockets were one of the many teams in the NBA that would be on the lookout for a new head coach before next season, but despite having the entire summer and possibly the months to follow pending an NBA lockout, the franchise have already made a decision and hired a new head coach.

There was no shortage of head coaching candidates for the Houston Rockets as they were considering people like Mike Brown (current Lakers’ head coach), Brian Shaw (former Lakers’ assistant coach), Dwane Casey (Dallas Mavericks’ assistant coach) and Lawrence Frank (Celtics’ assistant coach), but they have decided to go with former Minnesota Timerwolves GM and head coach Kevin McHale.

There were definitely some more experienced candidates for the Houston Rockets’ head coaching position, but the final decision seemed to be made after the Los Angeles Lakers hired Mike Brown as their main man on the sidelines. With Brown being their front runner or the candidate the Rockets wanted more than any other, Houston possibly made the choice to go with McHale.

With all the improved teams in the Western Conference like the Memphis Grizzlies and the Oklahoma City Thunder, the Houston Rockets will have their work cut out for them to keep up as it will be a challenge to bring in the kind of talent that can compete with the best of the best in the West. Their number one guy in Houston is Kevin Martin and with a few good years left in him and if he can stay healthy, the Rockets will have a star to build around, but McHale will have to put his GM skills to work to bring in the kind of players that can help this team get back into the playoffs in the near future.
