Ask two execs about the offseason misfortunes of the Daryl Morey and the Rockets and you’ll get three opinions. Morey has always been a polarizing figure in basketball, a case study in the benefits and hazards of disruption. And for those who find his methodology suspect and his public persona off-putting, July has been a cause for glee.

“Daryl wants everyone to think he’s the smartest person in the room — and he is smart, no doubt,” says one front-office executive. “But let your influence speak for itself. Stop taking victory laps.”

In the eyes of his critics, Houston’s offseason amounts to dealing Chandler Parsons, Omer Asik, Jeremy Lin, a first-round draft pick and a second-round draft pick for Trevor Ariza, a first-round pick and a trade exception.
