Daryl Morey says he is excited for Gersson Rosas, Sam Hinkie and Arturas Karnisovas, who have left or will leave the Houston Rockets and their positions as Morey's top personnel assistants for greater positions around the NBA.

Morey does not believe his assistants leaving is a sign of success and understands the Rockets will need to produce results.

"I don't feel we accomplished much, yet," Morey said. "I'll take more pride when we've actually had more results than before.

"It's a results league. It should be. Everyone, including ourselves, will be looking at what should be a step forward this year in hopefully a big way. … I'm trying to make sure we actually have some results before we get too excited."
