On April 22, 2023, Beijing time, according to Shams, the Raptors have finished coach Nick Nass. Then Woj reported that Nass would be the main candidate for the new coach of the Rockets. In addition to Nass, the second interview of the Rockets coach included Uduka and vogel. No matter which coach of these three becomes the new coach of the Rockets, it will bring great changes to this young team.
In addition to the position of head coach, Woj also talked about Harden’s future in the program. He said that Harden’s future depends on whether they can succeed in the playoffs this year and whether Philadelphia is willing to provide Harden with a long-term big contract. If not, Harden is more willing to return to the Rockets!
If the Rockets sign a contract with one of the three coaches and can sign Harden back to the team, then the team will have excellent coaches and meritorious veterans to lead the team forward. In addition, at present, the young players of the team have played well, and Jay Green, jabari Smith, Shen Jing and Ethan all have good development prospects. This team is really likely to become a potential team in the new season.
And the most important thing is that the Rockets still have a chance to win the first prize next season, and there is still a salary space of nearly 60 million dollars. This kind of Rockets is really worth looking forward to. Perhaps starting from next season, the reconstruction of the Rockets will be completely completed, and they will start to compete for the playoffs and even higher honors!
