Tilman Fertitta "fully intends" to retain Daryl Morey as general manager of the Houston Rockets, high-ranking sources within the team tell ESPN's Tim MacMahon.

Morey signed a five-year extension with the Rockets in 2019 and is believed to be making approximately $8 million per season.

Morey's job status has been a topic of discussion in league circles since his Tweet in support of Hong Kong protesters before the start of the 19-20 season.

Morey has run the Rockets since 2007.
