Sources tell ESPN.com that TNT’s Kenny Smith, who like (Sam) Cassell is a former Rockets player, could also land an interview.
“I’ve always said anything basketball is me,” Smith said Wednesday night on TNT when asked by Charles Barkley if he would be interested in the Rockets job. “And this is basketball. I enjoy being here. This is me.
“Asked again by Barkley if he wanted to coach, Smith said, “Well, I told you if it’s basketball, it’s me. Under the right circumstances. I’ve been here 17 years, and I’ve enjoyed every minute of it.”
