Morey posted this on his facebook page:Though a backup, Marcin Gortat posted some impressive numbers last season.

Rockets general manager Daryl Morey began his recruiting efforts to sign Magic backup center Marcin Gortat at 11:01 p.m. Tuesday, the first minute teams could begin speaking to free agents.Houston would certainly be a nice place for Gortat to land.
