“I’ve let [general manager] Daryl [Morey] and [team owner] Tilman [Fertitta] know that I’m energized to keep coaching—and believe that I can continue to do this at a high level for at least another three years,” the 68-year-old two-time Coach of the Year told Wojnarowski. “I want to be a part of a championship here.”
D’Antoni stepped in as Houston’s head coach in 2016 and has a 173-73 record with the franchise, but his Rockets have seen their season end at the hands of the Golden State Warriors in two consecutive years. This time, the Warriors ousted the Rockets 4-2 in the Western Conference semifinals.
