Rockets GM Daryl Morey Signs Four-Year Extension

5:06pm: Morey’s new deal is now official, with the Rockets announcing the extension in a press release.

“Daryl has consistently proven to be one of the top minds and innovators in our league,” Rockets owner Leslie Alexander said in a statement. “Iā€™m thrilled to continue to work with Daryl towards our pursuit of winning another championship for the Rockets, the City of Houston, and our fans all over the world.”

12:28pm: The Rockets have agreed to a four-year extension with GM Daryl Morey, according to Mark Berman of Fox 26 in Houston. He is now under contract through 2021/22.

Morey, who had one year remaining on his current deal, joined the organization in 2006 and took over GM duties a year later. He has turned the Rockets into consistent contenders, and the team posted the NBA’s third-best record this season.

His most successful move has been a 2012 trade that brought James Harden from Oklahoma City in exchange for a package of players and draft picks.

    To think the clown owner was going to fire him if the D’Antoni hiring didn’t work out. You guys don’t know how close he was to getting fired.

    I’m glad things worked out for the best. Daryl Morey is a top-5 GM in the league.

    I’m not even a Rockets fan

      I wouldn’t say top 5. Rockets still have real problems. Harden is overrated and the rockets have a terrible defensive system.

      And this is the same guy that signed Dwight Howard isn’t it?

      • Steven St Croix

        Harden is overrated? He won the players MVP and if he loses this year it will be to a guy that averaged a triple double. Also, Howard was on the team 2 years ago when they had the second best record in basketball. This year they had the 3rd and got Lou Williams for a bill of goods. Morey got Harden basically for a draft pick that became Steven Adams.
