Tilman Fertitta Confirms Rockets Will Retain Daryl Morey As GM 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Tue Sep 15, 2020 6:59 pm

During an appearance on CNBC on Tuesday, Tilman Fertitta confirmed that Daryl Morey is in no danger of being fired.


"Daryl Morey's job is safe," said Fertitta. "I'm sure he's going to pick the right head coach."


The Rockets will be replacing Mike D'Antoni this offseason.


"It begins and end with the general manager," said Fertitta of Houston's coaching search. "That's why you have a basketball operations team. They'll make a recommendation to me. I'm the sign off guys. I wouldn't know how to interview a basketball coach."

One of the few times I'm happy that the owner is cheap.

Well, I'm very surprised at this development. It might have gone differently if MDA stays.
