Daryl Morey Rumors

The connections run deep, in other words, and the natural question that could be answered on Friday is whether this appearance might be a precursor to his next basketball endeavor: Becoming an owner. Obama’s interest on this front has been acknowledged before, as his then-press secretary Josh Earnest told reporters in June of 2016 that the idea of being part of an ownership group had been “discussed…potentially…under the right circumstances.”
“I think obviously the reason he chose to come, only he would know,” Morey said when asked if he knew Obama’s motivations. “But we’ve spent several years – just like any prominent conference – hoping he would have interest in coming. He is, as far as I understand, someone who…worries about making the best possible decisions and has used data to help enhance his decisions in the past. He’s also a sports fan, also an NBA fan, which our conference obviously has significant coverage of. So I think all of these things factored into him obviously being interested.”

“We’re feeling good about potential buyout players,” Morey said. “Obviously, we’ll see how that materializes over the next few days, but we think there are players who could be available that could help us. We’d be looking for depth. It would be hard to get someone who would play. “It would be hard for us to get someone as good as Gerald. He’s playing extremely well. But there are some solid players, veteran guys who have helped veteran teams in the past, who could be available. We’re optimistic about one buyout if not more that maybe would work.”
