The Philadelphia 76ers hired former Rockets GM Daryl Morey to run the franchise’s basketball operations.
According to ESPN, the Sixers are giving Morey a five-year deal.
The move is a questionable one for Philly, especially after Morey’s small ball philosophy in Houston failed miserably.
General Manager Elton Brand previously stated that the team plans to keep both Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons, but Morey may push otherwise.
Hopefully Morey can find help find some perimeter shooters to surround Simmons and Embiid, who both struggled offensively last season.
