The Philadelphia 76ers are expected to hire Daryl Morey to oversee the franchise's basketball operations department. A deal will likely be finalized in the next few days.

Elton Brand will remain in the role as general manager. 

Morey and the Houston Rockets agreed to part ways on October 15th. Conversations between Morey and the 76ers commenced shortly after his departure from Houston and escalated in recent days. The 76ers pursued Morey in the past but he decided to remain with the Rockets and ultimately sign an extension. 

The 76ers hired Doc Rivers, who has a strong relationship and history with Morey, as head coach this offseason.
