Mike D’Antoni will not return to the Houston Rockets next season, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

D’Antoni will inform the Rockets’ ownership about his intention to become a free agent and sign with another team.

The contract of the veteran coach expired on Saturday, when the Rockets were eliminated by the Los Angeles Lakers (4-1).

D’Antoni will attract interest from several NBA teams, including the Philadelphia 76ers, the Indiana Pacers and the New Orleans Pelicans.
