Mavericks assistant Stephen Silas agrees to become Houston Rockets head coach

 

Dallas Mavericks assistant coach Stephen Silas is finalizing a deal to become the Houston Rockets head coach, first reported by ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Silas has spent the last two seasons on the Mavericks bench alongside head coach Rick Carlisle. Silas is known for his offensive mind and ability to create relationships with the players, like with Luka Doncic, who he worked out with during pregame shootaround.

Silas, son of longtime NBA head coach Paul Silas, has spent the majority of his career as an assistant, most notably with the Hornets/Bobcats for a total of 11 seasons.

This will make for Silas’ first head coaching gig in the NBA, though he served as an interim head coach for the Bobcats and Hornets on multiple occasions.

For the Mavericks, Carlisle and company will have a decision to make who fills Silas’ spot on the front of the bench, whether that’s internal or not.
