Houston Rockets Signs Blockbuster Four-Deal With Brooklyn Nets In-Trade of James Harden

Listen Now

The Brooklyn Nets have agreed to acquire three-time scoring champion James Harden from the Houston Rockets, a deal that reunites him with Kevin Durant and gives him the move that he has sought for weeks, according to multiple reports.

 Brooklyn sent the Rockets draft picks and multiple players including Caris LeVert, who was then traded to the Indiana Pacers for Victor Oladipo (big star, big aspirations, big move).

Brooklyn is also sending center Jarrett Allen and forward Taurean Prince to the Cavaliers as part of the trade, according to ESPN’s Wojnarowski.

Everyone knew the meteor was going to hit. It was just a matter of when and how much of a dent it would make on the NBA Earth. And a sizable one it was. Harden leaves the Rockets, joins a fresh Big Three in Brooklyn and two other teams pitched in with the deal to get their share of the pie.

The deal was struck less than 24 hours after Harden seemed to deliver a farewell address of sorts following the Rockets’ loss to the Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday night.

Earlier on Wednesday, the Rockets informed James Harden they didn’t want him at practice after his inflammatory comments about the team. “We felt it was best for James and best for the group for him not to come to practice,” coach Stephen Silas states.
