By everything we have heard so far in the last few days, James Harden wants to go to Brooklyn. It would take seconds for him to get online and say otherwise if it wasn’t true.
However, the Houston Rockets must agree to trade the superstar first since he still has a few years left on his contract.
Front Office Sports’ Anthony Puccio reported that the Rockets and Nets had reached a “verbal agreement” on a deal involving Harden that would pair him up with Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving in Brooklyn.
However, On ESPN’s Get Up!, NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski threw some cold water on that entire report when he said the Nets and Rockets haven’t been in touch with each other in days.
“While James Harden does want a trade to the Brooklyn Nets, there has been no contact between the Nets and the Rockets for the last couple of days,” Wojnarowski said. “And the initial contact that was there, I was told was not very substantive.”
Woj says that Houston is content to hold onto Harden so the franchise can either rebuild its relationship with him or find as good of a return deal as possible.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
