Morey was last month voted by his peers as the N.B.A.’s executive of the year for the first time in the wake of Houston’s 65-win campaign.
Morey’s acquisition of Chris Paul in a trade with the Los Angeles Clippers in June 2017 helped establish the Rockets as the league’s primary threat to the dominance of the Golden State Warriors, who have won three championships in the past four seasons.
Morey also received his latest contract extension from the Rockets in June 2017, which at the time extended his deal through the 2021-22 season. But that contract was awarded to Morey by the Rockets’ previous owner, Leslie Alexander, who sold the team to the Houston-based billionaire Tilman Fertitta in September for $2.2 billion, a league record.
The Sixers have been on the hunt for a new head of basketball operations since Colangelo was forced to step down in early June after his wife admitted to operating Twitter accounts that criticized 76ers players and other members of the organization while also defending her husband.
Coach Brett Brown has been serving as the Sixers’ interim head of basketball operations while team officials conduct a search for Colangelo’s full-time replacement.
