In a series of Twitter responses, Rockets GM Daryl Morey tweeted that he has no hesitation in negotiating trades with in-conference rivals. Here’s more from the Southewest Division, including additional insight into Morey’s strategy:
- Morey said he intends to keep Troy Daniels next year.
- The GM insisted that Chandler Parsons will be back with the team, although without revealing whether that would come via a choice to pick up Parsons’ team option for next season.
- The Houston executive believers there are “for sure” superstars available in this year’s draft class.
- Morey cites cap flexibility, the mid level exception, and draft picks as elements at his disposal in building a better team moving forward.
- Finally, Morey added that he wants to make moves that will give Houston a top-10 defense next season.
- Rick Gosselin of The Dallas Morning News thinks the Mavs need to add another star this offsesason, preferably a frontcourt player.
