It sounded like the Rockets’ GM Daryl Morey had come to a fork in the road in the search for a new head coach: Houston would either going to hire Mike D’Antoni, or they were going to hire Stephen Silas with Lionel Hollins as his lead assistant.

Or... there’s a third option — Spurs assistant James Borrego. From Marc Stein of ESPN:

I applaud Morey for having such a wide search and talking to so many potential candidates to find the right fit — this is a win now team with James Harden in the fold, so Morey needs to nail this hire.

But stylistically, the coaches he’s talked to recently seem all over the map. What kind of team does Morey envision building?
