The Sixers were rebuffed in their attempts to hire Daryl Morey away from the Rockets, per Marc Stein.
They couldn't do enough to convince Morey to leave Houston, where he's assembled a serious championship contender. The Sixers are still looking for a GM after the Bryan Colangelo fiasco and currently have coach Brett Brown working in the role but they're probably hoping to get him back to just his regular duties as soon as possible. Morey's spent the last 12 years in Houston and is close to finishing what he started, so it's no surprise that he'd want to take a step back — despite Philly's promising future — at this point in time.
