Daryl Morey became the general manager of the Houston Rockets in 2007, and his six-year tenure has seen its fair share of ups and downs. He's made some great moves as GM (i.e. the James Harden trade), but he's also made some questionable calls along the way.
During his tenure, the Rockets have made the playoffs just once and have been a lottery team each of the past three seasons.
That streak will almost assuredly end in 2012-13, as the Rockets are the No. 8 team in the Western Conference with the playoffs looming closer every day.
Regardless, some of the moves Morey has made as GM have prevented this team from getting back to the playoffs even sooner.
He's made many head-scratching acquisitions, and an even more baffling non-acquisition.
Morey has the Rockets moving in the right direction this season, but their rise could have occurred a few seasons earlier if he hadn't made some bad decisions.
