Daryl Morey steps down as Rockets CEO


Daryl Morey has resigned as general manager of the Houston Rockets.Morey had spent 13 seasons leading the Rockets with the team in the Western Conference Finals in 2015 and 2018.

After the Rockets were knocked out of the playoffs, Morey approached Tilman Fertitta to leave the job and the two sides made an exit deal.

While Morey doesn’t rule out a potential return to the NBA, he’s increasingly interested in interests outside of basketball.

The Rockets plan to promote executive vice president of basketball operations Rafael Stone to general manager.

Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports that the decision was made “100%” by Morey.
