Kevin McHale, whose Houston Rockets were eliminated from the NBA playoffs by Portland on Friday, reportedly will return to coach the Rockets next season.

McHale was in the last guaranteed year of his contract, with a team option for next season, and sources told the Houston Chronicle and ESPN.com that the team would exercise its option.

Houston management reportedly wants to give McHale more time with a young team that went 54-28 this season despite battling injuries.

McHale took over the Rockets in 2011 and has led them to the playoffs the past two seasons. They were knocked out of the first round on a last-second 3-pointer by Portland’s Damian Lillard in Game 6 on Friday.
