But Houston basically got nothing but the picks, in the long-term. Oladipo is a pending free agent who hopes to be traded again this year. Whereas the Sixers had a young, locked-up max player providing most of the value.
I think Houston made out great, mind you, but they didn't go into this season expecting to start a Process. And Harden will probably be fine, but it's still a short window.
Of course, the Sixers may still not win a title with Ben and Joel in the same window that Brooklyn now has with Harden.
