The Houston Rockets have agreed upon a four-year contract extension with Daryl Morey.

Morey had one season remaining on his current deal as general manager.

Morey joined the Rockets in 2006 and succeeded Carroll Dawson as general manager in 2007.

Morey was one of the founders of the MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference.

"Leslie (Alexander) wanted to secure his management team well into the future," said a source to the Houston Chronicle.
