Bucher talks about the Rockets’ finances

Long-time NBA insider and current FS1 analyst Ric Bucher has been rather vocal about the Rockets’ budget of late, and he offered more insight into the Rockets’ finances in a more detailed interview.

Bucher was on FS1’s The Herd with Colin Cowherd and had the below to say:

“There’s alot of things going on with the Houston Rockets. Number one, financially, this hit with Tilman Fertitta, the owner, a new owner, by the way. He acquired and inherited Daryl Morey.

They’ve got financial issues, and let’s not forget Daryl had the dust up with the whole Hong Kong-China incident at the beginning of the year, which also costed the Rockets a ton of money.

I can make the argument that the way the Rockets play does give them an advantage under these circumstances. But that said, it’s also their last best chance.

Because if what I’m hearing about their financial situation is accurate, they may very well be pressed to move one of those guys at the end of the year.”
