In an interview with CNBC, Houston Rockets chairman Tilman Fertitta said that general manager Daryl Morey's job is safe. The organization is focused on finding its next head coach, which Fertitta indicated will be handled by Morey and the front office more than himself.
"It begins and end with the general manager," Fertitta said. "That's why you have a basketball operations team. They'll make a recommendation to me. I'm the sign off guys. I wouldn't know how to interview a basketball coach."
ANALYSIS: Morey is an analytically-driven basketball mind, so that and the roster construction are sure to play a huge role in who comes next for the Rockets. Fertitta will seemingly follow his lead when it boils down to making a decision.
