Rockets Trade Harden

The Brooklyn Nets have agreed to acquire James Harden from the Houston Rockets.

The Rockets will acquire four first round picks and four pick swaps. Brooklyn will send out Caris LeVert, Jarrett Allen and Taurean Prince as part of the package.

The Cleveland Cavaliers will acquire Allen and Prince while sending a 2022 first round pick from the Milwaukee Bucks, Rodions Kurucs and Dante Exum to the Rockets.

The Rockets will own unprotected first round picks from the Nets in 2022, 2024, 2026, Milwaukee's unprotected first round pick in 2022, as well as first round swap rights with the Nets in 2021, 2023, 2025 and 2027.

Houston will go under the luxury tax by $3.65 million and the hard cap by $9.95 million per Bobby Marks of ESPN.

The Philadelphia 76ers had been considered the favorite to acquire Harden due to the possibility of Ben Simmons being included in a trade package.


Olapido and 4x 1st round picks all unprotected and 4x swap rights.

Is it confirmed the picks are unprotected? Oladipo is probably gonna walk to Miami in the offseason so I expect he either gets moved again or its a typical Tillman Fertita being a cheap skate move and cost cutting move. At this point just trade everyone for more draft picks and start from scratch

The first 2 of those 4 first rounders will be most likely bad, but the other two is too far from now so we don't know yet.

At this point you get whatever you can for him.
RealGM loves you, Melissa.

I thought Allen was one of the better players and should have been going to Houston. Now if reports are true and Dipo wants Miami, meh. Forgot to mention the first two of those picks will likely be late first-rounders.

Yeah, it sucks but most of the old guard just moved on to different life stages. I'm almost done with college.

I like the trade though, but depends where the picks land. I'm not a huge Ben Simmons fan.

Only Philly trade I would've taken over this was Simmons + Maxey and picks/thybulle. Apparently Philly wasn't willing to include Maxey, which would be a deal breaker for me and apparently for Houston as well

Return to Houston Rockets
