It was inevitable that a James Harden trade was coming. On Wednesday afternoon, the Brooklyn Nets finally pulled it off. They also included a number of other teams in the trade.
Blockbuster James Harden Trade
Harden has finally had his wish to leave the Rockets granted. He also will get to team back up with Kevin Durant, after the two played their early careers together with the Oklahoma City Thunder.
The James Harden trade is a big one, with many assets and teams involved.
Rockets Receive: Victor Oladipo, Dante Exum, Rodions Kurucs, three BKN 1st-Rd Picks (22, 24, 26), one MIL 1st-Rd Pick (22, unprotected), four BKN 1st-Rd Pick Swaps (21, 23, 25, 27).
Nets Receive: James Harden
Pacers Receive: Caris LeVert, 2nd-Rd Pick
Cavaliers Receive: Jarrett Allen, Taurean Prince
While the Nets gave up a ton to trade for Harden, they have the potential to form one of the greatest “Big Threes” of all time, with Harden, Durant and Kyrie Irving.
