Default Rick Adelman gone, no longer Rockets coach

After four days of talks, some that were close to bringing Rick Adelman back as Rockets coach, Rockets general manager Daryl Morey called Adelman a “Hall of Fame coach.” He also showed Adelman the door. Adelman was happy to take it.

Adelman, who led the Rockets to their only playoff series win in the past 14 years and a franchise record 22-game winning streak, agreed to step down on Monday, a decision described as mutual.

“After numerous discussions and careful consideration with Coach Adelman, we have mutually agreed to part ways,” Morey said in a statement. “It has been a privilege and an honor to work with and learn from Rick during these past four years. He is a Hall of Fame coach who earned the respect and admiration of our entire organization during his time here.”

That's bull shit. He's a great coach. Not his fault he gets hammered with injuries.

Adelman and a couple free agents could make the Knicks great.

Yep the team sucking had nothing to do with roster moves or the fact that Yao's lower half is made out of breadsticks. It was all Adelman

Strange decision. Good market for coaches in the summer. Sloan and Adelman.

Clippers should hire this guy. Del Negro isn't as good of a coach.

Rockets pretty much did Adelman a favor. He'll most likely be the frontrunner for a lot of coaching vacancies.

What? Why? Adelman's a great coach, he already got an injury depleted Rockets team with so many moves overachieving for 2 years straight. The best non all-star team.
What more do you expect from him?
Houston's not going to get another coach close to Adelman.
