Rafael Stone: “Our culture is that we work really hard and we support one another…And that is largely a function of Stephen Silas and what he’s done on that. Culture is a very coach driven thing. I want to give Stephen his credit. I think he did a very good job on that front.” – 6:50 PM

Rafael Stone: “I think we thought it was time for a new voice, and it has nothing to do with Stephen, actually. It’s much more about ‘Ok, we’re exiting one stage, entering another, what’s the optimal way to go forward’ and try to optimize from that.” – 4:52 PM

Rafael Stone: “We have a really good culture. We have not managed to turn that culture into wins at this point in time, but culture I would put our team up there with anyone in the NBA. We work really hard. People are very supportive of each other, they get a long very well.” – 4:43 PM

Rafael Stone said trading one or both of their picks is on the table for the #Rockets: “We’re uniquely positioned. We don’t have to draft both of the picks. We don’t. A lot of teams in our position (do)… but I actually feel really good about the young talent on our roster.” – 4:18 PM
Adam Wexler @AdamJWexler
“We’re going to bring in veterans regardless. We don’t necessarily have to draft (with both of our picks). I feel really good about the talent on this roster,” – #Rockets GM Rafael Stone. Said trading picks for future picks, for veterans, all optoins will be considered. – 4:18 PM

Rafael Stone: “This summer has always been important to us. We’re obviously going to have the two (draft) picks, but we’re also going to have the ability, for the first time, to bring in veteran players and see if we can mesh the thing together. That’s what we’re going to do.” – 4:12 PM
Adam Wexler @AdamJWexler
#Rockets GM Rafael Stone on the traits of the next head coach: “I think we want somebody who has a real vision for how to implement our young guys & incorporate some veterans, who for sure we’re going to add this summer.”
