Houston Rockets small forward Robert Covington was a guest on ESPN's “The Jump” on Friday and he was asked to talk about Stephen Silas taking over for Mike D'Antoni.

Surprisingly, Covington is the first Rockets player to address the Silas hiring. The sharpshooter also spoke about the expectations for the 2020-21 season, which will start on Dec. 22.

Unless you have been living under a rock lately, the Rockets are facing a lot of turmoil right now. Russell Westbrook has requested a trade and James Harden has questions about the future of the club as well, though it appears he's committed to staying in Houston.

Robert Covington, who was acquired by the Rockets from the Minnesota Timberwolves, is just trying to keep his head down and focus on what he can control. The 3-and-D veteran is looking forward to getting to know Stephen Silas and developing a coach-player bond.

The Rockets lost to the Los Angeles Lakers in the second round of the 2020 playoffs in five games at Walt Disney World. Houston actually won Game 1 of the series in blowout fashion, but Lakers superstars LeBron James and Anthony Davis flipped the switch after Game 1 and became too much for the Rockets to handle in the NBA bubble.

Moving forward, it's going to be fascinating to see where Westbrook gets traded and what Harden's future is as well. Covington could also be involved in a trade since no player on Houston, other than Harden, is untouchable in trade talks.
