Looks like the Houston Rockets are on to the second round of interviews for their head coaching gig.

Lawrence Frank, the Celtics lead assistant, is had a second interview with the Rockets Monday, according to Comcast Sports New England.

Frank, once the head coach of the New Jersey Nets, is one of the three finalists for the Rockets job. The other two are two former Timberwolves head coaches — Kevin McHale and current Mavericks lead assistant Dwane Casey.

The person hired will replace Rick Adelman, who did a good job as Rockets head coach but the franchise chose to go another direction as they started to rebuild the team around a new core.
