Daryl Morey decided to leave the Houston Rockets and is no longer the GM of the franchise.

Per Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle, Morey leaving the team was his own decision.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, Morey contacted owner Tilman Fertitta after the elimination from the playoffs with the idea of parting ways with the Rockets after 14 years.

The two sides worked on an agreement and, therefore, Morey will leave the team on November 1st.
