Texas Notes: Bzledik, Harris, Barnes

The Rockets will be without the services of associate head coach Jeff Bzdelik this season, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN tweets. The mind behind Houston’s defensive improvement has decided to retire at the age of 65.

Wojnarowski adds that the departure, less than 10 days before training camp opens, will put the Rockets on their heels and many of Bzdelik’s responsibilities will be spread over the remaining staff.

Bzledik previously served as the head coach of the Nuggets, with a number of other teams in smaller roles and at several stops in the NCAA.

  1. Don’t think Barnes will get any better, he is a good player but nowhere near a star player, so he has already reached his ceiling.

      Yep. Decent player on a bad team the past two years. As the team improves he will regress to his true status (really good role player).

        Word. Hes not overrated but hes not there. Hes not underrated but hes just not that star. I dunno. He deserves his contract but I just cant put my finger on it. He just doesnt do enough of something. Agreed he is a glorified role player. He can be a Pippin to a Jordan. And I dont mean Deandre.

          Scottie pippen? In his dreams, Pippen is one of the best players to ever play. He was overshadowed by Jordan. Barnes is not even an all star caliber player, let alone HOF caliber.

            Jordan made Pippen, Pippen was a mentally weak female in the early 90’s till Jordan gave him that dog mentality.

            You mistook what I meant. I meant he has to be second fiddle at best. Not the first option. He needs a higher caliber player around him.
