James Harden Told To Stay Home While Rockets Look To Finalize A Trade
After saying the rift between himself and the Rockets front office can no longer be amenable and proclaiming the Rockets as “just not good enough”, James Harden may finally get his wish to be traded.
ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reports that Houston has told James Harden to stay home while they work to find a team they can trade him to.
The Brooklyn Nets, who have their own superstar issues with Kyrie Irving, who is away from the team due to personal reasons, are one of the teams looking to bring in Harden and the Philadelphia 76ers.
Determining which team wins the Atlantic Division could be as simple as determining which team can land Harden. At FanDuel, the Nets are currently +120 to win the division, while to win the Eastern Conference, the Nets are +260 with the 76ers at +500.
Houston has the night off tonight while Brooklyn is back in action against their crosstown rival, the New York Knicks.
