Stephen Silas, Jeff Van Gundy, and John Lucas are the three finalists to be the next head coach of the Houston Rockets, according to Mark Berman of Fox 26 in Houston.


The next step is for team officials to consult with players, added Berman.


Silas had this second interview on Friday. 


Daryl Morey reportedly took a diminished role in the current coaching search.

Seems like this is JVG's job to lose. Harden and Westbrook will feel pressure to back a young black man under the social circumstances. But I imagine both will secretly prefer JVG even if they don't feel they can back him.

It's too bad Houston didn't talk to someone like Cassell or Billups. Both those guys seem like good candidates.
