HOUSTON – KHOU 11 Sports has confirmed that the Houston Rockets will interview both former player Mario Elie and current assistant Jack Sikma for the vacant head coaching job.

Both men have been rumored to be candidates for the job from the start and are expected to meet with the team later this week.

Elie, who is currently an assistant with the Sacramento Kings, played for the Rockets from 1993-1998, helping bring to NBA Championships to Houston.

Sikma has been with the team since 2007 and was told during exit meetings that he would have the opportunity to interview for the job as well.

The Rockets parted ways with Rick Adelman last week after going 43-39 and missing the playoffs for a second straight season.
