Rick Adelman Will Not Retire After Being Let Go By Rockets

The Rockets have elected not to retain coach Rick Adelman. Jonathan Feign of the Houston Chronicle reports that Adelman is disappointed that he will not be retuning to Houston, and that he would have been open to a return had the organization suggested it. Adelman will head back to his home in Portland to weigh his future, but that he has no plans of retiring.

"I definitely would look at situations," Adelman, 64, said. "It's not like I'm retiring. I'm OK with doing something else. We'd like to travel. We'd like to do things we weren't able to do because of basketball. If there is no basketball, we're ready for that. But I would look at things if they come up."

Adelman also said that there were some disagreements with what the future of the organization should like, and Adelman's role in helping them get there; which must be the reason that they decided to let him walk. Adelman suggested that assistants Elston Turner and Jack Sikma were ready to be NBA coaches, but there is no word that they are part of the Rockets search for a new coach.
