Daryl Morey is well-known as a former general manager of another NBA franchise – the Houston Rockets. He spent 13 years working in Houston and helped the Rockets become one of the best teams in the league. The 76ers took this decision after a dissapointing season.

In an official statement to the press Daryl Morey thanked Josh Harris for this opportunity to work for the 76ers. He promised to work tiredlessly to win the hearts of the Philadelphia’s fans. He stated he couldn’t miss the opportunity to work with Doc Rivers, Elton Brand and 76ers’ stacked roster.
