The Houston Rockets have signed 53-year old Kevin McHale to a 3-year deal to take over as the team’s head coach. McHale last was a head coach in the NBA back in 2008-09 with the Timberwolves and he was 20-43 (31.7%). He has coached parts of two years in the NBA and he is 39-55 (41.5%). McHale was elected into Basketball’s Hall of Fame as a player back in 1999. He played in 971 games in his NBA career and he averaged 31.0 minutes, 17.9 points, 7.3 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 1.7 blocked shots per game. The Rockets must be hoping that McHale can coach up the team based on how good of a player he was. The Rockets have a lot of talent on the roster, so they might not be too patient with McHale if he gets the team off to a slow start.
