Daryl Morey Took 'Diminished' Role In Rockets Coaching Search 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Sat Oct 17, 2020 5:34 am

Daryl Morey took on a "diminished" role during the Houston Rockets coaching search in recent weeks, sources told Kelly Iko and Sam Amick of The Athletic.


Morey's role was likened to operating "essentially as a consultant." Rafael Stone was promoted to replace Morey as GM.


Two Rockets candidates stated that it wasn't necessarily clear that Morey was leaving the team, though other candidates observed that Morey wasn't leading the interview process.


The Rockets have interviewed several candidates thus far, including Stephen Silas for a second time on Friday.


Morey said that he would like to return to the NBA sometime in the future.

Bloody Tilman.

This owner lies through his teeth. He literally said to the world that the GM would be choosing.

Making the spectators think he left the team on his own terms but if the owner started to do this now we know why he walked
