James Harden and Russell Westbrook will remain with the Houston Rockets next season, says an NBA insider.
Per Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle, the star duo will keep playing for Houston.
“The blow it up and start over thing is not for this offseason. And the reason I feel fairly certain about that is they’re certainly keeping James Harden informed and getting his input on coaching, discussions and considerations. You wouldn’t involve him if you’re planning to send them off somewhere,” Feigen said on the Pushin’ Thru podcast, via Kurt Helin of NBC Sports.
Harden and Westbrook failed to lead Houston to the NBA Finals and were eliminated in the second round of the playoffs by the Los Angeles Lakers.
The Rockets are in search for a new head coach, as Mike D’Antoni left the team, while many changes to the active roster are now expected.
