Multiple coaching staff changes appear to be looming in Oklahoma City as well with the Sacramento Kings, I'm told, in pursuit of Bob Beyer from Billy Donovan's staff and, as we reported earlier today, new Suns coach Monty Williams seeking to bring Mark Bryant to Phoenix

D'Antoni, for his part, has said in numerous interviews that he remains hopeful of securing a multi-year extension from the Rockets after a three-season run in which Houston has been widely regarded as the league's second-best team. MDA has only one season left on his contract

Quoted @Jonathan_Feigen

Rockets player development coach Irv Roland said he also will not be back. https://twitter.com/Jonathan_Feigen/status/1132064488121950208 …

New owner Tilman Fertitta told @Jonathan_Feigen earlier this month he intends to keep Mike D'Antoni as Houston's coach, but the flurry of changes imposed on D'Antoni's staff has some in the coaching community wondering if the Rockets are trying to nudge D'Antoni toward the exit

If the Bucks win Game 6 in Toronto, then things really get complicated for co-owner Wes Edens, whose basketball team would play for a spot in the NBA Finals in Milwaukee mere hours after his soccer team plays in London for a spot in the Premier League -->

Quoted @MicahAdams13

Giannis Antetokounmpo in the 4th quarter last 2 games: - 0 fastbreak points - 0 assists - 3 turnovers - 2 rebounds - 3 fouls drawn

The Bucks got all the way to the Eastern Conference finals without facing a real crisis ... which is great but also not the best when you have no group history escaping from one

In Phoenix, meanwhile, Steve Blake (Blazers staff), Randy Ayres (Nets scout) and Mark Bryant (Thunder bench) have all emerged as top contenders to land on Monty Williams' coaching staff

Malik Allen -- lone survivor from Tom Thibodeau's coaching staff in Minnesota -- has emerged as a prime contender for the Miami bench as the Heat look to fill the void created by Juwan Howard's departure to Michigan, league sources say

Monday's one-off game at Wembley that will send either Aston Villa or Derby County to the Premier League has another NBA tie besides Edens' ownership stake in Villa: Derby's Marcus Olsson, still recovering from a long-term knee injury, is the brother-in-law of Dirk Nowitzki

Imagine Milwaukee playing a Game 7 to go to the NBA Finals hours after Aston Villa meets Derby County at Wembley for a spot in the Premier League. All that could happen Monday ... as @NYTSports discusses here with Bucks and Villa co-owner Wes Edens —>

BIG thing to watch tonight’s Game 5:

Can Giannis Antetokounmpo overcome Kawhi Leonard’s defense? 

Giannis is shooting just 34.6% this season with Kawhi guarding him. Nick Nurse gave him that assignment starting Game 3, completely changing the series.

NEW: TNT's Kenny Smith and I chatted about how Inside The NBA has become too big to fail: “It’s gotten to the point where the powers that be — how do I put this — they’re afraid to talk to us. Because when you talk to us, we take it to the other extreme."

Methinks Golden State would prefer to have No. 35 to face whoever wins this series ...

Less than IDEAL . PS -- I'm with Hojo Beck and believe most writers would gladly give the vote back to the players or anyone else who wants it. I haven't voted the past two seasons since joining the NYT and miss factoring into contract bonuses zero percent

Also less than idea: Kareem won an MVP trophy in his first season as a Laker in 1976 when the players were still voting ... and when the Lakers went 40-42 and missed the playoffs

Warriors say they "anticipate" DeMarcus Cousins (quad) playing in The NBA Finals while remaining merely "hopeful" that Kevin Durant (strained right calf) can also return

Warriors announce that it’s “unlikely” Kevin Durant will play at the beginning of the Finals but “hopeful” he could return at some point during the series
