    Daryl Morey was in a good mood after the pick. Believe me, I've seen Daryl after a disappointing draft and this was not that. They may have wanted to move up, but he didn't seem down about it.

    For 30-60 seconds, the camera goes a little wild. Sorry about that... I was trying to tweet out that he said he was "100% confident" they would create the necessary cap room.

    I'm heading home now... will update with more later.

    DM obviously has a deal in place and you are right, he does look very confident compared to some previous drafts... Not nearly as tired or harried.

    Thanks Clutch!

    Thanks Clutch. Appreciate your posting this late at night (or early in the morning, I should say).

    Thanks Clutch!

    Looks like Morey has slimmed down some. Good for him. :)

    Interesting that all the guys they liked getting to their pick were PGs. Seems like other teams agreed, as three PGs (McCallum, Wolters and Pierre Jackson) went off the board within the next eight picks after the Rockets took Canaan. One would figure that Pierre Jackson -- who went to Philly -- was one of those guys the Rockets liked as well.

    Unrelated question, what day is his birthday? Im getting mixed on it being either may 2nd or may 21st. Draft express says 21st, draftnet says 2nd then Google says 2nd, wiki says 21st?

    I think just general fan observation on cap space can see its at least 85% there ARE POSSIBLE deals like Thomas Robinson for a 2nd round pick or trading other players for nothing, IF IT HAD to COME to that. It may work AGAINST themselves but it can be done.

    I hope we will get to see whether Morey's confidence is justified.

    Thanks, Clutch! Great vid. Excited to see what's going to happen in FA.

    This video made my night. We don't have to worry about anything. The rockets are more than set.

    You do. A starter, a backup, and an insurance in case one of the first two gets injured since you don't want to play a PG all 48 minutes for an extended period of time.

    I like his honesty, saying he will probably go to the vipers (like almost all draft picks).
