Are teams scared of Morey?

I was talking to a friend today and we started talking Rockets and the draft (obviously, since I'm posting here). 

We were talking about the potential lack of suitors the Rockets could have to make similar deals to last year's draft-night orchestrations by Daryl Morey. The question that came up: is it possible that teams don't want to deal with the Rockets because they know Daryl Morey seems to only make good moves?

Yes, there's the signing of Steve Francis, but everything that the Boy Genius seems to touch regarding the draft turns to gold.

Luis Scola, Carl Landry, Aaron Brooks, Shane Battier, and even the Batum/Greene/Artest moves have all made the Rockets contenders, and each player contributed mightily to the Rockets' 2009 playoff run and at least the former four will be integral parts of a 2010 run (Artest as well, should he re-sign). And yes, I know Scola was not a draft-day thing, but it was an offseason move in July, so close enough.

The point is, Morey is magic on draft deals. Do teams want to mess with fire with this guy genius? I can't see the Rockets getting any major steals this year, but I can see teams only coming to the Rockets because they need the help financially, which probably won't help us moving forward. All of this because of Morey.

I'm not saying he should be fired or anything, and if I ever did, you have permission to shoot me in the face. Teams should absolutely be scared of him. What I'm trying to get at is this: is Morey "too good" at being a GM? Are teams afraid to go near him now?

What do you think?
