Season of hot seats He officially started this past Sunday after announcing the dismissal of Luke Walton as head coach of the Sacramento Kings. A destination that could be followed by another coach in the league sooner rather than later.
As reported by the media Bleacher Report, Stephen Silas’ position at the helm of the Houston Rockets hangs by a thread. The Texas franchise is mired in a losing streak that has already chained fifteen consecutive losses, which has sunk it in the ranking hole with a 1-16 record.
The truth is that Silas encountered a bleak outlook shortly after being signed as head coach in October 2020. At that time, James Harden and Russell Westbrook were still on the team, while Daryl Morey had not yet left the offices of the team. organization. However, this landscape changed radically and Silas was forced to move forward with a team with minimal expectations in the short term.
Thus, the Rockets could barely add 17 wins in 72 games last season. And although in this they had not set a specific goal in terms of victories, the lack of competitiveness shown by the team runs the risk of claiming their position.
In Texas they are directing their efforts in the development of the youth of the team, but they will have to decide whether or not Silas will be part of this journey. For now, the coach is optimistic despite the defeats.
