Mike D’Antoni informs Rockets that he won’t return as head coach

Head coach Mike D’Antoni informed the Rockets on Sunday that he would not return next season, according to reports . D’Antoni and the Rockets failed to come to terms on an attempted contract extension last offseason, and most around the NBA had expected the Rockets to look elsewhere. After a disappointing end to their 2019-20 season in the second round of the playoffs. D’Antoni was not under contract beyond this season, so it is a clean financial break without any future salary obligations.
