Daryl Morey Rumors
Mark Berman: From the #Rockets: Houston Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey announced that the team has waived forwards Daniel House, Jr. and Cam Oliver.
Fertitta praised Brown and Rockets general manager Daryl Morey, saying he would keep the Rockets management team in place. He and Brown had already spoken about changes great (addressing the NHL potential in Houston) and small (pledging to upgrade the players’ dining room.) Mostly, he and his family celebrated a day long anticipated. “It’s an unbelievable thing, an unbelievable day,” his father Vic Fertitta said. “To see your son do what he’s done and remember him as a child, this is just wonderful. He’s been a Rockets fan for so many years, I just can’t tell you. He’s been a Rockets fan as long as I can remember. It’s been about as good a story as you could tell.”
Last year, during a brief hiatus from his day job scrutinizing jab steps and jump shots, Morey was able to partake in another interest — by sizing up love ballads submitted by composers who were vying to work on a musical comedy that he is producing. He later huddled with the show’s writer and director. “I made them follow our pre-draft process,” Morey said. “So I was like, ‘We all have to rank the players. And we can’t talk before we rank them because you have to eliminate group think.’ And then after we did all the rankings, we talked about it.”
