Rockets’ GM Daryl Morey Says Team Is Done Making Moves
(NEW YORK) -- The Houston Rockets made arguably the biggest splash in free agency this summer when they signed center Dwight Howard. According to the Rockets' general manager Daryl Morey, the team is done making moves.
The Rockets were rumored to be looking to move point guard Jeremy Lin and forward/center Omer Asik.
"The reality is James and Dwight want to play with Jeremy and Omer," Rockets' general manager Daryl Morey said on Saturday. "I've been kicked down to assistant GM. They're going to be here."
Asik has reportedly voiced his displeasure about playing alongside Howard and his new role on the team. But Howard thinks the two can coexist.
"Omer might not really see the total big picture right now, and I totally understand," Howard said via the Houston Chronicle. "He's a young guy and he wants to really be respected. I would tell him when I see him, 'You've done a great job on this team. I'm going to help you and this team get better.'"
In his first season with the Rockets, Asik was third in the NBA in rebounding at 11.7 per game. Meanwhile, Howard led the NBA in rebounding with 12.4 per game.
