It’s unclear what assets would have been heading back to Milwaukee, but the Rockets are thin at point guard since Jeremy Lin signed with the Lakers this summer, and Sessions, a seven-year veteran, would have been more than capable of running the show as James Harden‘s backup.
But it appears as though the two sides won’t be coming to an agreement any time soon.

Sessions is an unrestricted free agent, so theoretically the Rockets could sign him outright if a deal could be reached. But Houston already has more players under contract than roster spots allowed, so freeing up one or more of those (along with the financial concerns) would have been the reason for completing the trade with the Bucks.
Harden averaged 38 minutes per game last season, so it’s not like Houston needs an extremely strong replacement for what amounts to no more than 10 minutes a night. But a pickup like Sessions would have been a nice addition to a team with aspirations of playing deep into the postseason.
