Report: Rockets GM flies on private plane to NBA Combine with Joe Lacob, Warriors contingent


On Wednesday, the Rockets beat the Warriors in Game 2 of the Western Conference Finals.

After the game, Houston GM Daryl Morey flew on a private plane to the NBA Draft Combine in Chicago with Warriors owner Joe Lacob and other members of the Golden State organization, according to Marc Stein of the New York Times.

The flight was reportedly arranged by the Warriors and Morey was invited onboard by Lacob.

The combine began on Wednesday and runs through Sunday.

Golden State currently possesses the No. 28 overall pick in the 2018 draft, but does not own a second-round pick.

The Warriors bought their way into the second round in 2016 (Pat McCaw) and 2017 (Jordan Bell).

Morey and the Rockets only have one pick in the draft -- No. 46 overall.
