Houston Rockets to interview Dave Joerger

via Memphis Grizzlies may lose second assistant » The Commercial Appeal:

Grizzlies assistant coach Dave Joerger will meet with the Houston Rockets next week about joining their revamped coaching staff.

Memphis granted Houston permission Friday to talk to Joerger about being a top assistant in charge of defense under Kevin McHale. According to press reports, the Rockets have reached an agreement with McHale to replace Rick Adelman as head coach.

In light of what we already knew about Chris Finch, this puts the McHale hiring into greater perspective.  The model is apparently to surround a charismatic, respected figure with proven strategists receptive to analytics.  I don’t think you can complain about that.
