Rockets will hire Stephen Silas as head coach

According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, Dallas Mavericks assistant Stephen Silas is finalizing a deal to become the next head coach of the Houston Rockets.

Rockets were sold on Silas' offensive ingenuity, his pedigree w/ Rick Carlisle, Steve Clifford and his father, Paul Silas. Silas has coached some remarkable guards in his NBA career, including Luka Doncic, Kemba Walker, Steph Curry. Now he gets to run offense for Harden-Westbrook

ANALYSIS: After spending over 20 years as an assistant coach between four different organizations, Silas will rightfully receive his opportunity to be at the head of the coaching table. His longest tenure with a team was during his second stint in Charlotte, where he held the title of associate head coach with Steve Clifford.

If Houston returns its same core, Silas will have a plethora of talent to work with, spearheaded of course by James Harden and Russell Westbrook.

Stephen is the son of former longtime NBA head coach, Paul Silas -- who helped his son get a foot in the door as an assistant after originally entering the league as a scout. Stephen was 27 years old, the youngest assistant ever in league history at the time.

Fast-forward two decades later and Stephen will now lead his own Rockets team.
