Report: Rockets Interviewed Kenny Atkinson for Head Coach

Former Brooklyn Nets coach Kenny Atkinson interviewed with the Houston Rockets for their head coach position this week, reports Alykhan Bijani and Kelly Iko of The Athletic.

The Rockets are considering Atkinson among a long list of candidates, which reportedly includes Ty Lue, John Lucas II and Wes Unseld Jr.

Atkinson, who served as the Director of Player Development for the Rockets during the 2007-08 season, led the Nets to a 28-34 record last season despite numerous injuries to key players.

Last month, former Rockets head coach Mike D’Antoni announced that he would not return to the team after Houston lost 4-1 in the second round to the Lakers.
