Chuck Person Interviewing For Assistant Coaching Job On Kevin McHale's Houston Rockets Staff

Chuck Person was rather en vogue as a head coaching candidate this offseason, but as positions are filled, he’s apparently changing his focus to assistant coaching jobs.

Person served on the Los Angeles Lakers staff this past season and has previously spent time coaching the Cleveland Cavaliers, Indiana Pacers and Sacrament following his NBA career, but his next stop could be as an assistant with the Houston Rockets on new coach Kevin McHale’s staff.

Person interviewed with the Rockets on Monday, according to ESPN’s Dave McMenamin, after previously interviewing for the Golden State Warriors head coaching job as well as with Mike Brown to continue in his position as a Lakers assistant.

Other possible candidates for McHale’s staff have included Dave Joerger of the Memphis Grizzlies, Denver Nuggets assistant Melvin Hunt and Chris Finch of the Rockets’ D-League team.

There’s no hurry in filling out McHale’s staff, but it would be nice to clear it up sooner rather than later so that these names aren’t picked up by other teams once they fill their head coaching positions.
