The Houston Rockets need to have a more versatile playing style next season, according to new head coach Stephen Silas.
That said, Houston is expected to move on from the small-ball they played in the second part of the 2019/20 season.
“In today’s NBA, you cannot play one way. Small ball can be a part of it. On the offensive end, we want to be a little less predictable.
On the defensive end, the same thing. Playing against teams that have different ways of defending is tough. I want to be that team.
What I will do [on offense] is try to make it easier. Put in a few little actions and be a little more versatile on the offensive end to let those guys play to their strengths. Not so much stand around with iso.
Defensively, we’re going to have to improve. It’s going to take a little more structure and a little more discipline,” Silas said in a press conference on Thursday, via Ben Dubose of USA TODAY Sports.
