By Dave McMenamin
LOS ANGELES -- After meeting with new Los Angeles Lakers head coach Mike Brown on consecutive days late last week to interview for an assistant coach position, Chuck Person is keeping his options open.
Person traveled to Houston on Sunday and will interview with the Rockets for a position on new head coach Kevin McHale's staff on Monday, according to multiple sources.
He previously interviewed for the head coaching vacancy in Golden State, as well.
Person, 46, spent the last two seasons as an assistant under Phil Jackson in L.A., assuming the responsibility of implementing a new defense for the Lakers in the second half of the 2010-11 season.
Person retired in 2000 after 13 seasons in the league. He served as an assistant with Cleveland, Indiana and Sacramento before joining the Lakers.
