HOUSTON (AP) -Frustrated by his team's ouster in the first round, Jeff Van Gundy plans to take some time to evaluate his future as coach of the Houston Rockets.
The Rockets' season ended Saturday with a Game 7 loss to Utah, and a report in the New York Post the next day said Van Gundy was going to retire.
``I do the same thing every year since I've been coaching - I sit back and I think about what's right for the team and what's right for myself,'' Van Gundy said Monday. ``This is no different.''
Van Gundy said he had no immediate plans to make a major decision.
``To do that, when I'm still emotionally frustrated with the outcome (of the series) would be, really, a disservice to everybody involved,'' he said. ``Where that originated, I haven't seen the story, so I can't tell you. When I got called about it, it caught me off-guard a little bit.''
Van Gundy has one year left on his non-guaranteed contract, meaning the Rockets have the right to terminate it any time after June 30. Van Gundy said he had no timetable for meeting with Rockets owner Les Alexander.
``To me, I'm under contract,'' he said. ``I love the team, I like the organization a lot, I've been treated extremely well here. I have zero complaints.''
