If sixers would have offer Harris, Maxley, and 3 firsts and 4 future pick swaps (including this year which obviously won't convey since Rockets will have a worst record), I'd do that trade in a heartbeat. That's essentially the Nets package.
They were never taking Tobias’s contract. Caris went to the Pacers so Houston could get Olidipo’s expiring. The weren’t going to take 3.5 more years of Harris at 35 million/per. No chance.
The nets offer of Allen and levert plus 4 picks and 4 draft swaps (essentially 3 draft swap since 2021 draft swap 99% chance will not convey). Any team in contention could have given Houston similar package.
Considering levert and Allen didn’t even end up in Houston.
Houston didn’t end up with any young player. They just restock draft picks. Sixers or other teams could have given them the same draft picks as the nets
That’s why you stay put. Called Houston bluff.
