James Harden has finally been traded, solving a months-long dilemma for both Harden and the Houston Rockets.

Obviously, that never eventuated with Harden being traded to the Brooklyn Nets as part of a four-way deal involving Cleveland and Indiana. The Rockets weren't given a franchise cornerstone in the deal, but got plenty of draft picks that should position them to build a talented roster.

The Rockets received three unprotected picks from the Nets, along with the Bucks' first-round pick in 2022 via the Cavs, and four pick swaps with the Nets.

In mid-November, Harden turned down an extension in Houston that would have made him the first $ 50 million-a-year player in League history, and IT reported that Harden had begun discussing his future with the Rockets leadership. "I would say what's super exciting about this deal is it gives us flexibility". "In the National Basketball Association, picks are the best currency. Everybody likes them, everybody values them". So that was great.

"I think, for me, giving myself a chance is very, very important", Harden said. Houston entered Sunday tied with New Orleans for the second-worst record in the West at 4-7.

Oladipo said he was especially looking forward to his backcourt pairing with former All-Star point guard John Wall, who will miss his third consecutive game Monday because of a sore knee.

Wood leads the team by averaging a career-high 23.2 points and 10.9 rebounds.

Harden's desire to get out of Houston had been a dark cloud hanging over the team. "With this squad, this coaching staff and this organization, I think we have a legitimate opportunity".

He was asked to grade his performance so far.

Harden expressed remorse for the way things played out in his last days in Houston, but explained that he took a hard look at the organization, and "felt like we didn't have a chance" after it fell in the playoffs last season to the Lakers in just five games. "But I'm doing the best that I can and I think it has been pretty good".

The start of the chase could come as soon as Saturday, as Nets coach Steve Nash hopes Harden can start against the Orlando Magic. "Exhaust my potential here and go out there and be me.to the highest level and help this team win".
