I think we can unanimously agree that Morey has done a good, not great, job as GM. Most of his moves have made the franchise better either by getting better players or putting us in a better financial situation. Is it fair that alot of us here judge him solely on the fact that he has not delivered a superstar?
The thing is, he can't do a trade without a someone else accepting the trade.
It's not just up to him. And all GM's are competing to not look like that got the lesser end of the deal. To get a deal done it will probably appear at best to be slightly in the other teams favor (I think, like the Dalembert deal)
I think he's one of the best Gms in the league not named Dwyanna wade. It's not his fault that today's superstar have a Wussified mentality. But that's besides the point, He is the same guy that got you artest for a nickel bag and a late first rounder. To me,the only thing he has failed at has been his openess and neglecting the center position.
It's Maury's time to shine.

I thinks he's done a good job considering where he started. AB for nothing, AB for Dragic and Monty, makes good solid moves. But, he no longer has a built in excuse about bad contracts he inherited, so it really sink or swim this year.(My bet is swim.)
Solid is an acceptable job... Good is a step above acceptable. I agree with solid and if he doesn't bring us a superstar or remarkable rookie in the next season it may be time to let him go. His job to make us better, not maintain our mediocrity.
I feel that it is definitely fair. Sure, him and Les have to work together and set guidelines, but mediocrity does not make you a great GM. Almost completing a blockbuster trade does not make you a great GM. Drafting lottery picks who get limited minutes do not make you a great GM. Now, drafting a starter in the 2nd round, can make you a great GM. Overall, Morey should be judged on his lack of home runs.

I understand Morey has not been giving a great hand to start with but eventually you have to show progress. This team has failed to do that in the last 3 years. He needs to go deep here soon. He has a good batting average but we need some runs to cross the plate for once. You don't win with hits but with runs!
