Via Houston Chronicle:
No one thought the deal was dead, but it did not seem imminent, either. There seemed to be no reason to stay at the Golden Nugget, so Rockets general manager Daryl Morey and executive vice president Rafael Stone decided to grab an Uber and head to the Rockets’ summer league game in Las Vegas.
In the course of that 20-minute ride — with Morey and Stone on their phones and the Uber driver, air pods in place, blissfully oblivious that an NBA-shaking trade to send Russell Westbrook to the Rockets was coming together in his back seat — the deal moved from dormant to done.
All that and they’re still not going to win anything. But hey, it makes for a good story.
