AP source: Rockets won’t renew Adelman’s contract
Question of the Day
Adelman came to the Rockets after guiding Portland to two NBA finals in the early 1990s, missing the playoffs in two disappointing seasons in Golden State, then transforming Sacramento into a perennial contender in the Western Conference in the early 2000s.
His contract was not renewed after the 2005-06, and Adelman sat out a year. He mulled several options in 2007 and decided the Rockets job was the most appealing _ under the assumption that Yao and McGrady would stay healthy.
“At the time, I was talking to two or three teams, and this was obviously, the best situation,” he said. “Those guys were here. They had won 50-plus games.
“I had three experiences (before Houston),” he said. “At two, I had a lot of talent and at one, I didn’t. I won at two places and didn’t win at the other. I figured it out that talent is pretty important, especially if you have a unique blend of a big guy who’s one of the best in the league and a perimeter player who’s one of the best in the league.”
“I don’t think I’ve lost the desire to coach; I think I still can do it,” Adelman said. “This team has been a lot of fun. It’s been tough during the season. I tell people that, when you go through it, it’s not so easy. But when you work with a group of guys who just won’t quit, and play above and beyond what people expect them to do, that’s a lot of fun when you look back on it.”
