The Houston Rockets are wasting no time in finding a new head coach to replace the recently departed Rick Adelman.
FOX Sports has it that the Rockets have already contacted former Atlanta Hawks coach Mike Woodson to let him know they'd like to talk to him. Woodson coached the Hawks for six seasons, compiling a record of 206-286. He left the team in 2010.
Meanwhile, ESPN reports that the Rockets are in "hot pursuit" of former Cleveland Cavaliers coach Mike Brown, who compiled a record of 272-138 over five seasons there. The site notes, though, that the Detroit Pistons and Indiana Pacers "will also be in play" for his services.
