We spoke to Houston Rockets GM Daryl Morey and Houston Rockets Director of Scouting Arturas Karnisovas after the draft tonight. Below are those videos. We also spoke to Houston Rockets draftee Royce White via phone – the audio of that conversation can be accessed by clicking the link below.
The laughter during Morey’s answer to my first question was due to the fact that earlier in the presser, Morey had mentioned that the team had made another trade which he could not announce due to league regulations. As we learned, the alluded deal was the purchase of a second round pick.
My sincerest apologies for the formatting on these: this was the first time I used my Iphone to record (I used a flipcam in years past) and stupidly recorded horizontally. After rotating the clips in imovie….well, you see the finished products…
