NBA Rumors: Mike D'Antoni Turned Down Rockets Contract Extension Offer

The Warriors caused the dismantling of the Chris Paul-led Los Angeles Clippers. They caused the dismantling of the LeBron James-led Cleveland Cavaliers.

Now, they might lead to the dismantling of the Mike D'Antoni-led Houston Rockets.

Just days after reports surfaced that all Rockets players and draft picks were on the table, now comes word that Houston and their head coach have broken off contract extension talks.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski and The Athletic's Sam Amick broke the news that the two sides ended negotiations on Thursday, and the Houston Chronicle confirmed the news with D'Antoni himself.

"We could not come to terms on an extension," D'Antoni told Jonathan Feigen. "I have my contract still. I'm looking forward to the year and having a great season."

D'Antoni is still under contract for the 2019-20 season.

If the Rockets blow up their roster and D'Antoni walks away after next season, the Warriors can take credit for bringing down another franchise with championship aspirations.
