Yesterday New was “CEO denies reports of James Harden, Dwight Howard demands” about Dwight Howard
Houston Rockets CEO Tad Brown was firm in the franchise’s denial that star guard James Harden asked for coach Kevin McHale to be fired during a rare interview with Rockets beat reporters on Thursday.
CBS Sports reported Harden pushed the Rockets front office to fire McHale, who was let go just 11 games into the season with a 4-7 mark. Harden, according to the report, also asked general manager Daryl Morey to trade center Dwight Howard, something the Rockets failed to do.
“I can tell you unequivocally, being part of that [front-office] team, those things have never happened,” Brown said prior to the Rockets’ 119-105 comeback win over the Portland Trail Blazers. “That’s frustrating, and, for whatever reason, it’s been a constant throughout this season. As we struggle and as we continue to struggle a little bit on the court, trying to get things to where we want them to be, that people have continued to take shots at our guys, take shots at our team, with unnamed sources being the ones who routinely provide that information.”
The Rockets have been disappointing the entire season, currently posting a 29-29 mark and with a half-game for the West’s eighth and final playoff spot.
Brown denied an NBA.com report stating Howard and Harden asked for each other to be traded two seasons ago after Morey told ESPN the same last week.
After reaching the conference finals last season, the Rockets have been shaken by inconsistency despite the strong play of Harden, who is second in the league with 28.6 points per game.
