Houston Rockets wanted to trade Harden as soon as possible

James Harden’s future with the Houston Rockets has been a hot topic in the NBA world over the past week. First, Houston shared that they are in no rush to trade James Harden even though the 2018 NBA MVP wants to move to another team. However, things seem to have changed.

According to the latest sharing of prestigious journalist Adrian Wojnarowski, Houston Rockets now wants to move James Harden away sooner. The reason comes from the team that is afraid of the negative energy that Harden shows during a time when he cannot meet the need to leave. This is something that can completely affect the team’s dressing room.

The Rockets are negotiating more with other teams, not just Brooklyn or Philadelphia. They began to gather information from teams from both the East and the West. Brooklyn and Philly are the two brightest options, but the door is open to any other team that wants the service of James Harden.

Houston is looking to make the deal sooner

This will support the team to follow the new system and path that new captain Stephen Silas is drawing for the Rockets. The important thing at the moment is that the team needs to find a suitable offer and it does not necessarily extend the team’s future. Rockets have a list of what they want.

With the number of years remaining in the contract of James Harden, Houston Rockets is the party that takes the full initiative. They may not trade Harden or choose another time to break the trade for the next two years.

However, Woj’s new information shows that the Rockets do not want to retain a superstar who is not interested in playing. This can harm the dressing room and the overall morale of the team. After all, it wouldn’t be a surprise if James Harden was traded to another team in the next few days, just before the start of the new season.

According to ESPN journalists Adrian Wojnarowski and Ramona Shelburne, many teams have contacted the Houston Rockets to offer to trade for James Harden. The newest and most exciting development came this morning, coming from one of James’s favorite destinations.

The ESPN journalist duo reported that the Philadelphia 76ers were ready to put Ben Simmons on the table to discuss James Harden. However, the two sides did not reach a common voice after the first hours of discussion. Immediately after this information was released, the 76ers’ professional chairman Daryl Morey denied it.

Would James Harden want to stay and play for the Houston Rockets?

If this deal involving James Harden comes to fruition, it is likely that the NBA’s balance of power will change significantly. Would James Harden want to stay and play for the Houston Rockets? The answer seems to be changing day by day.

Shortly after Russell Westbrook shared his intention to leave the team a few days ago, Harden told reporters that he still believes and will stay in Houston. But this belief does not seem to be very strong, especially after the information has just been published by a series of prestigious journalists such as Adrian Wojnarowski or Ramona Shelburne.

James Harden expressed his intention to play for the Brooklyn Nets

According to Woj and reporters at ESPN, James Harden has expressed his intention to play for the Brooklyn Nets. This is the team “at the top of the list of destinations” of Harden. Up to the present time, Brooklyn and Houston have not had any discussion regarding “bearded god”.

At the same time, Wojnarowski further notes that the Rockets have no intention of letting James Harden go and will do their best to keep the All-Star defender in Houston. In Brooklyn Nets, James Harden has a brother and former teammate from the Oklahoma City Thunder era – Kevin Durant.

Over the past time, the two have discussed reuniting and the possibility of competing against each other in the future. However, nothing is certain and the leaders of the two host teams have not had any negotiation action.

According to some other sources cited by CBS Sports, Harden is increasingly dissatisfied with the ability of the Houston Rockets to compete for the championship. This means that James has thoughts about leaving before his contract expires.

Brooklyn Nets is where the “beard god” wants to go, but it is not clear whether this team has enough players or picks to trade for James Harden or not. There will still be a lot more to happen for James Harden to officially step into the Barclays Center as a Brooklyn Nets player. But if this deal comes to fruition, it is likely that the NBA’s balance of power will change significantly.
