Despite John Wall and Boogie Cousins looking great in preseason games so far, All-NBA guard James Harden continues to want out.
ESPN reported that Harden is still pushing his way out of the franchise and the Rockets star reportedly has two preferred trade destinations in Philadelphia and Brooklyn, according to ESPN.
However, a blockbuster trade between the Rockets and Nets is highly unlikely as Brooklyn has zero interest in trading Kyrie Irving for Harden. The Rockets, meanwhile, don’t appear to be interested in Irving.
“The Nets aren’t interested in trading Kyrie Irving, nor have the Rockets expressed an interest in acquiring him, sources said. For starters, the Nets and Rockets would need to find a more palatable young player on a third team as part of a broader deal, sources said, and there’s no indication that prospect has gained any traction in recent weeks.”
Houston is scheduled to open the 2020-21 season on Dec. 23rd.
