Jeff Van Gundy loses out on Rockets coaching job to Stephen SilasIt doesn’t appear Jeff Van Gundy will be returning to the NBA sidelines next season. Van Gundy was considered a finalist for the Rockets opening to replace Mike D’Antoni. Instead, that coveted job will go to Mavericks assistant Stephen Silas. The former Knicks coach has been a lead NBA analyst for ESPN since his last coaching job — also with Houston — in 2007. The Thunder are the only team still looking for a head coach now and Van Gundy has not been linked to that opening.
