Tuesday night’s draft lottery was typical – both a spectacle and spectacularly boring, and you get the feeling that Houston Rocket general manager Daryl Morey was more than happy to sit it out.

Not only did Morey’s Rockets make the playoffs this season for the first time since 2009, but for once Morey doesn’t have a battalion of draft picks he’s hoarding. After owning three draft picks in the 2012 NBA draft, Morey happily sent each of his 2013 first rounders elsewhere via trade. And though he’ll be interviewing prospects for Houston’s No. 34 selection in next month’s draft, the playoff berth and iffy talent level have Morey in a good mood.

As evidenced by his Twitter feed, on Wednesday afternoon. Check these out:

Now, we don’t want to get into rampant speculation about who these Marcus Williams draft interviewees might be, so we’ll err on the side of tact.

Happily (I think?) this could be the tip of the iceberg with stories like these, which would go back to when Morey was working in the Boston Celtics’ front office. We’ll let you know if Daryl decides to grace us with any more of them.
