The Houston Rockets promoted Rafael Stone and Eli Witus, two key members of their front office.
Stone will become the vice president of basketball operations with Witus being named the assistant general manager.
"We are very fortunate to have Rafael and Eli. They work wonderfully together providing strategic insight and analysis. Collectively, they are on the cutting edge of basketball decision-making and have been key to our ability to put the team in the place we are today. It is important to us organizationally to be flexible and creative as we find ways to add to our roster and these two are at the forefront of that effort. Whether it be acquiring Chris Paul two years ago or signing Clint Capela this summer, we are leaning on them to identify winning players and figure out the best method of fitting them into our team," said Daryl Morey in a statement.
