Morey. In the early morning of the 16th, according to ESPN and Yahoo Sports and other US media reports, Rockets general manager Darrell Morey has reached a resignation agreement with the team-after 13 years in office, he left Houston.
Morey, 48, has served as the general manager of the Rockets since 2007 and has been in this position for 13 years.
He sent Paul away last summer in exchange for Westbrook. The team had a record of 44 wins and 28 losses in the regular season, ranking fourth in the Western Conference, but they were eliminated in the semifinals and did not meet expectations.
After Morey leaves, the Rockets plan to let Rafael Stone, vice president of basketball operations, serve as general manager of the team.
In the past few years, Stone has played an important role in the Rockets team building, and he will also become the 10th black executive in the NBA to serve as the general manager of the team.
Rafael Stone played basketball at Williams College. Since 2005, he has served as the Rockets’ general counsel and was promoted to the team’s vice president of basketball operations in 2019.
On October 9, the spokesperson of the China Central Radio and Television General Station answered reporters' questions about the live broadcast of NBA games.
