    Rocket GM Carroll Dawson said on a Houston radio station yesterday, "It's definitely his if he wants it, yeah. If everything goes well, then there's a good chance he gets an offer."

    The former Knick coach plans to visit Houston today to take a tour of the Rockets' practice facility, meet with team officials and check out schools, the city and housing.
    all JVG must do is sign the paper, and i'm pretty sure he misses his old job

    I hope JVG knows what he's doing if he goes back to coaching. He's a lot less stressed as a commentator for TNT and the bags under his eyes have been long gone.

    The compensation issue could be moot if Van Gundy turns down both Houston and Washington. Van Gundy is expected to make a decision today or tomorrow. Van Gundy, who was holed up in his Westchester home yesterday debating his future, is also considering returning to television for another season as an analyst for TNT.

    As I said on my board, the compensation is so insignificant and Layden would probably bumble the extra draft pick anyway. Whatever the Rockets give the Knicks as compensation may as well not exist from a Knick fan's standpoint.

    If anybody thinks that a second round pick is worth anything to the Knicks, Michael Wright and Eric Chenowith would like to have a word with you.

    Anyway, it looks like Van Gundy has taken the job with the Rockets. I truly hope he does well, but I think he's forgotten how well he's had it for the last couple of years without having to study game film until 4 AM every morning.

    huh.. anything is better than nothing
    anyway, i wish van gundy all the best and good luck with the rockets.
    they'll probably grow much into defense and i'm sure they'll make the playoffs next year
