  • Mike D'Antoni will enter next season as a lame duck head coach after turning down a one year extension worth five million plus an additional one million bonus for every playoff round one.

  • For now, D'Antoni seems fine with the arrangement, while Houston owner Tilman Fertitta said he's quote thrilled tohave D'Antoni back.

  • Michael, Let's face it.

  • The winds of change are blowing in Houston.

  • How do you see this entire thing playing out?

  • Likely blowing D'Antoni right out of town.

  • I mean, you're not gonna come back.

  • First of all, it doesn't seem like a real extension that's on the table that was on the table.

  • At one point.

  • It sounds like parting gifts.

  • I mean, you okay, we're gonna We're gonna give you basically half the salary you're making now for that extra year.

  • And we're going to incentivise it with these bonuses.

  • If you do this.

  • If you do that.

  • No, Mike D'Antoni's a proven coach.

  • Mike D'Antoni's got Houston.

  • As far as they've been in the post Akeem Olajuwon era.

  • Now I can't see him doing this.

  • Other teams going to be interested, and by this, let's face it, the Rockets are unsatisfied with not being able to beat the Warriors.

  • How did they even know who's gonna be on the roster with the most recent developments of yesterday?

  • And Mike, I think it's complete an overreaction by the Houston Rockets.

  • First of all, you don't know if Durant's going to back in Golden State the last two years.

  • You've lost to the best team.

  • So what do they do?

  • They get rid of the entire coaching staff.

  • Really?

  • That's what it was.

  • So you know that they're trying.

  • They're poking Mike D'Antoni a little bit now.

  • Warren Ligairi, Mike's agent, told the Houston Chronicle that that's really not the extension that they offered.

  • It's really 2.5 million if he gets fired before the season for making the house doesn't start until he get until he gets out of the second round.

  • So it looks a little bit different than what they're making it out to be.

  • And if I might, D'Antoni Mike has accomplished a lot and this idea that can't work that way.

  • I'm not buying it.

  • The last two years.

  • They lost to the best team.

  • They're not getting knocked out in the first round by chopped liver.

  • They're losing to the to the Golden State Warriors.

  • You know what?

  • Apparently for teachers.

  • One of those owners who wants it now and believes he's got the goods and somebody is short changing it.

  • And basically, this is throwing the head coach, Mike D'Antoni under the bus.

  • It is no matter what they say.

  • And so now you don't you think the other team's gonna be interested enough in D'Antoni, even if you have to take a year off?

  • What?

  • He doesn't have to do this.

  • And Mike, I think this is a case of them.

  • May be looking to save a little bit of money.

  • Jeff Best Delic was making a lot.

  • That was a defensive coach.

  • They got him.

  • They're looking to get Mike for maybe 2.5 million.

  • Someone's not gonna be back out of that group of James Harden.

  • Chris Paul.

  • Right now that looks so you gonna spend $77 million on two players and not cover your investment with a really, really, really, really fine coaching staff.

Mike D'Antoni will enter next season as a lame duck head coach after turning down a one year extension worth five million plus an additional one million bonus for every playoff round one.
