Yao-zas! Daryl Morey recruits Marcin Gortat via Twitter

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
Houston Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey -- faced with the unenviable task of replacing Yao Ming -- has taken to Twitter to ask fans to help him land a formidable replacement.

Here's a Morey Twitter post from last night:

Morey apparently made his pitch to Gortat just after the free agent signing period started.

The Rockets even made post-modern come hither eyes at Gortat. So, will this become a new trend? Will the NBA's wooing of top -- or even average -- free agents start looking more like the college recruiting process?

There's no word yet whether Morey's intricate free agent recruitment dance has worked. We'll keep you posted on where Gortat and his Air Jordan calf tat end up.
