    Breaking News Patrick Ewing leaves the Rockets

    After three years working with Jeff Van Gundy on the sidelines in Houston, Patrick Ewing has resigned as assistant coach of the Rockets, KRIV in Houston reported on its Web site.

    Ewing is leaving the team to spend more time with his family, the station reported, citing sources close to the team. The sources also said that the organization does not intend to replace Ewing, which would mean an increased role for assistant coach Charlie Ward, a former teammate of Ewing.

    Ewing, Van Gundy and Rockets' GM Carroll Dawson were all unavailable for comment.

    An 11-time All-Star, Ewing was the face of the Knicks' franchise during the 1990s when New York shared heated rivalries with Chicago, Indiana and Miami. The Knicks reached the NBA Finals twice during Ewing's tenure, in '94 and '99, losing both times.

    Among the 7-foot center's other accolades are two Olympic gold medals (1984 and 1992), an NCAA Championship (1984) and being named one of the NBA's 50 greatest players.
