HOUSTON -- Former NBA coach Rick Adelman has talked to the Houston Rockets about the coaching job currently held by Jeff Van Gundy, according to media reports Tuesday night.
KRIV-TV, citing anonymous league sources, reported Adelman flew to Southampton, N.Y., for a meeting at the home of Rockets owner Leslie Alexander.
The Houston Chronicle, citing a person with knowledge of the team's decision-making, reported that general manager Daryl Morey also was part of the meeting.
Rockets spokesman Nelson Luis declined comment on the reports when contacted by The Associated Press on Tuesday night.
Of course, sure to get lost in the hoopla is the key word currently. Jeff Van Gundy hasn't officially left yet, despite rumors. But if Adelman does end up coaching Houston next season, I get the feeling they'll finally make it out of the first round.

It's total madness that it has even gotten to this point. Seattle is the 14th largest market and loves it's NBA team. There is no hockey or real NCAA team that threatens this love. It's got a huge Asian population which the NBA wants to tap into.
