Rockets Coaching Search: Sam Cassell Interviews, Rockets Meet With Lawrence Frank

According to The Houston Chronicle’s Jonathan Feigen, the Rockets sat down with Sam Cassell yesterday to discuss their vacant head coaching position. Cassell has been an assistant coach with the Wizards for the past two seasons, and was a member of both Rockets championship teams in 1993-94 and 1994-95. He has been regarded as a good tutor for Wizards No.1 pick John Wall. Cassell is likely just a fringe candidate for the Rockets coaching job, but it’s good to see the organization giving interviews to it’s old standbys.

The Rockets also reportedly met with Celtics assistant Lawrence Frank in Miami on Monday. This is a little more interesting. The Rockets have been playing things very close to the vest and not leaving town to publicly take trips. This could be a sign that Frank is one of the internal leading candidates.

TNT analyst Kevin McHale is also supposed to be interviewed for the head coaching gig some time this week.
