In Morey we trust.

According to Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle, the Rockets and general manager Daryl Morey have agreed to a five-year extension.

Morey led the Rockets to a franchise-best 65-17 record last season and has turned the Rockets season around after a 9-14 start.

The team currently sits at 42-25 on the season thanks in large part to shrewd acquisitions like Danuel House Jr., Austin Rivers and Kenneth Faried.

Morey has been Houston’s GM since 2007 and will likely be there for a lot longer, given owner Tilman Fertitta’s confidence in him and his vision.

The Rockets have not had a losing season during Morey’s tenure.

The extension has Morey signed on as Houston’s GM until the 2026-2027 season, which will be his 20th season with the team.

Congrats on the contract extension, Daryl!
