According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, Mike D’Antoni and the Rockets have ended potential contract extension talks.

D’Antoni has the best coaching record of any head coach in franchise history with a .703 mark after three 50+ win seasons in Houston.

MDA and the Rockets were discussing a potential extension after the season as the 68 year-old said he was interested in coaching for “a few more years.”

However, within the past two weeks, the Rockets have parted with most of D’Antoni’s staff from last season, including top assistants Jeff Bdzelik and Roy Rogers.

With just one year left on his contract and D’Antoni ending potential extension discussions, it looks like this could be the beginning of the end for the MDA era in Houston.
