With a head coaching vacancy in Houston, expect the franchise to take a strong look at Los Angeles Clippers assistant Tyronn Lue.

Lue, who is currently an assistant coach on Doc Rivers’ staff with the Los Angeles Clippers, is one of the top head coaching candidates on the market.
The Rockets are in the market for a head coach after Mike D’Antoni decided that he would not be returning to the team.
Houston made some deep playoff runs under D’Antoni, but it underwhelmed this season. After acquiring star guard Russell Westbrook, Houston nabbed just the No. 4 seed in the Western Conference.
Lue would bring a different voice to the Rockets’ locker room. He won an NBA title as the Cavs head coach in 2016.
