Rockets GM Rafael Stone: ‘This organization hasn’t been in a position to invest in the future like we are now’

Houston Rockets general manager Rafael Stone is making franchise-altering moves less than a year into his new role.

But most notably, Stone also dealt the face of the franchise in NBA superstar James Harden, who asked for the trade and voiced his displeasure with the team’s performance publicly.

That happened last weekend when I took a road trip to Deception Pass State Park, which spans Fidalgo and Whidbey islands.
