Morey: Rockets Unlikely To Move Up In Draft, See Value In First Round Picks
Daryl Morey said it's unlikely the Rockets will make a deal to move up in the draft.
“I think it’s always hard,” Morey said of making a significant move up in the draft. “I think teams fall in love with who they might get so it’s very hard, unless you’re already top-10, to move within the top-10. I think if there is a move up option it will be for a couple spots versus a big leap. We would like to move quite a bit up but I think that’s unrealistic."
Houston owns the 14th and 16th picks in the draft, which begins Thursday night.
“The nice thing is that after maybe the first three-to-five guys, it’s pretty flat," Morey said. "We could easily get someone who we might rank six or seven at 14, just because it’s very unpredictable after the first three-to-five picks in this draft.”
