The Rockets' GM, who has lost two centers to serious injury in the last few months -- Dikembe Mutombo and Yao Ming -- has used Facebook to help charm a free agent replacement.
His target? Dwight Howard's backup in Orlando, Marcin Gortat.
This was posted on Daryl Morey's Facebook page shortly before midnight:
Meeting in a few w/ Gortat.Send a note to him NOW at firstname.lastname@example.org. He will receive. Show him how much we want him in Red!
The Rockets' website has more on the team's respect for Gortat.
