Point guard Kyle Lowry does not believe he can coexist with head coach Kevin McHale, and consequently wants out of Houston.

Houston Rockets point guard Kyle Lowry doesn't think he can coexist with Rockets head coach Kevin McHale. Or at least that's what he's telling the Houston Chronicle, as he tries to force a move.

Lowry does not believe he and Goran Dragic, his successor as the starting point guard this season, will both return to the roster next season. Lowry was even less confident he and Rockets coach Kevin McHale can successfully coexist.

"I don't think so," Lowry, 26, said. "I honestly think it would be tough. Things have to be addressed. The situation would have to be addressed.

"If things aren't addressed coaching-wise, I guess I have to be moved."

For what it's worth, McHale was taken aback by the comments, and did not believe that there was an issue between he and Lowry.

"That's very surprising," McHale said. "I didn't think we had too much of a problem coexisting this year. Everybody has a little beef every once in a while. I didn't feel like (there were problems). He apparently did.

"There were times that we didn't agree on things. There were times that I got on him. I don't think it was unduly harsh on anybody."

There's a long way to go before the NBA offseason begins in earnest, as the Conference Finals have yet to be held, but the Rockets are getting a head start on offseason drama.

We'll see how the summer unfolds for Lowry and the Rockets.
