08:08 AM ET 04.27 | No matter his 39-55 record, Kevin McHale is always an intriguing coaching candidate. McHale will interview for the Houston Rockets coaching job, league sources told Yahoo! Sports. ... The Rockets and McHale are still working on setting a date for the meeting, presumably around McHale's playoff broadcasting responsibilities, a source said. Houston's casting a wide net to find a replacement for Rick Adelman. GM Daryl Morey has a list of interview candidates that includes ex-Cavaliers coach Mike Brown, Dallas assistant Dwane Casey, Milwaukee assistant Kelvin Sampson, Washington assistant Sam Cassell and Houston assistant Jack Sikma. McHale is expected to be in the running for the Boston Celtics coaching job, too, if Doc Rivers declines to sign a contract extension.

Let's see - go coach a team that needs to be blown up or go "home"...


Tough call.

Does it really matter?

It would be kind of cool to see McHale coaching the Celtics with Ainge the GM. McHale has helped stock them with talent already.

Yup. Now let Detroit hire Laimbeer and we will see the first coach v. coach fight!

If Laimbeer were involved, McHale would have to hire Robert Parish as an assistant.

But of course. After the fine job he did in Minnesota, who else would be better suited?

Not a good selection.

Bad move letting Adelman go. He was a decent coach and they almost made it to the playoffs with only Kevin Martin and Scola in their lineup
