Report: Rockets agreed to pay Daryl Morey, Tad Brown even after departures

NBC Sports


Article Summary:

Daryl Morey left the Rockets for the 76ers.

Why are these executives fleeing the Rockets?

Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle:

The Rockets’ agreement with Morey, Brown and others that were part of sale when the team was sold to Tilman Fertitta in 2017 gave five-year guaranteed contract extensions in which they will get paid by the Rockets, even after taking positions with other organizations, a person with knowledge of the agreements said.

As the Rockets went south around James Harden’s trade request, that made it even easier for Morey and Brown to move on. Heck, if Harden knew of Morey’s contract terms and suspected Morey would leave, that might have even influenced Harden’s decision.
