Houston Rockets general manager Darryl Morey submitted to a question and answer session with season ticket holders last Friday, and touched on a number of subjects including but not limited to the fate of C Omar Asik, the Rockets’ playoff chances and his decision to select F Royce White (above) with the 16th overall pick in the 2012 draft. On the matter of White, Clutch Fans.net provides this excerpt from Morey’s comments :
“I take some sort of pride that you could argue that Royce White is the worst first-round pick ever. He’s the only one that never played a minute in the NBA that wasn’t just a foreign guy staying in Europe. It just shows we swing for the fence.”
Though it’s hard to argue that Morey shouldn’t have opted for White, this might be ultimate diss to Kwame Brown (if not LaRue Martin).
