Daryl Morey Rumors
He led all NBA players in total points and minutes, while finishing sixth in total assists (and first among non-point-guards). His 10.7 offensive win shares ranked third in the NBA behind only Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant. His 6.9 value over replacement player ranked fourth, trailing only Curry, Russell Westbrook and LeBron James. “He’s only a polarizing figure to people who don’t watch,” Morey told Basketball Insiders. “Players voted him MVP [in 2014-15] for a reason. He’s had a winning team every season of his career, with multiple Conference Finals appearances.”
Ending off the podcast, Arnovitz asked if Morey could see himself pursuing opportunities outside of the NBA. While Morey reassured him that he will continue his work in the NBA, he said that if he were to go anywhere else, it would be esports. “I think it’s the 1950s basketball right now, where there’s that kind of opportunity,” he said.
Calvin Watkins: Rockets GM Daryl Morey said Eric Gordon is the “perfect complement to James” Harden within the structure of the offense. Coach Mike D’Antoni said there won’t be issues fitting Gordon in with Harden, two players who command the ball.
Unfortunately for him, this summer’s free-agent list is below average. “No, it’s not a great free-agent year, it isn’t,” Morey said. “It’s a lot of money chasing obviously quality players, but there’s way more money chasing way too few players. So I think it’s going to be a very difficult free agency to navigate, outside of the few top guys who you know day one you’re handing them all the money that you possibly can.”
