The reality is that no one wants to play with Harden. He gets all the glory, they do all the work.

Danny needs to snatch PJ Tucker away from the Rockets while they're still in shambles!

He'd be an interesting rental, but at 35 and the beating he's taken over the years, at some point the wheels will fall off hard for him.

He's at the tale end of his contract I believe and would absolutely be a key piece to Banner 18 if he was here.

Yes, and RoCo too. It would be nice if some PJ Tucker rubs off on Grant Williams.

Ibaka would have to take a lot less money to go to BKN.

As for Harden to BKN, yeah that feels like Grads just trying to get a reaction. Literally an hour before, you can see his tweets said Harden to Philly so the dude is blowing smoke per usual. The Nets have a decent amount to offer, but if Philly offers Simmons, the Nets have no shot of getting him.

That being said, I'm sticking with my prediction that both Harden and Russ are Rockets next year. Why you ask? Who the hell is gonna take Westbrook's deal? I honestly believe zero teams in the league want him, he has three years left on the worst deal in basketball.

I honestly think unless you give the Knicks or Hornets multiple firsts (and Houston has already given up a ton of their picks), WB has no leverage here.


I disagree about Westbrook. Someone will absolutely take him. Not saying they should but someone will. For a team like Charlotte (whose owner loves him) or Orlando it’s legitimately their only shot at getting a superstar (although a fading and flawed one). If he legit wants out there will be takers.

Idk man, like he has a player option for $46 million in a few years, and let's be real, the cap is going to be smoothed out and WB's contract takes up like 40% of a team's cap by itself, if they trade for him. It will put awful teams in the LT if you take his contract, unless they have cap room.

I normally think a team would take him, maybe NY will, but I honestly think nobody wants him. Maybe if you throw in 2 firsts to get it done, but Houston can't afford to do it.

He's not bad, but he blows a lot of smoke that doesn't happen, from my experience.


He's now saying Harden to the Nets. Lol. If that happens....it will be very funny watching Kyrie play the 3rd banana while Harden and KD fight over who's first banana. I'm actually hoping that it happens. Would prefer to see that implosion vs having to go up against a Harden/Embiid combo.


Nets are supposedly favorites for ibaka in free agency. Don’t know how that happens if harden goes also but well see

ibaka would have to sign for tax payers MLE....

Last year when CP3 was traded for westbrick I said it was terrible for rockets. Then watching them play I said the rockets won games in spite of RW and he was worst player on the court, and the Rockets fans on the GB said I was wrong. Then in the playoffs he looked unplayable and his contract is just flat up worst (no idiots, Kemba's isn't worse). Yet teams still want to trade assests for him. We heard Knicks, and now i'm seeing a team with 2 pg already the Hornets want him.....Teams just don't understand low eff high usage get me a triple dub, who cares if we win at 40m a year isn't a good thing.

Hayward and picks for RoCo, Tucker and Gordon is a no-brainer

Feel free to destroy my career with a 5 year $206M contract and an MVP.

But, yeah, paying attention to important stats has definitely taken some of the shine off him, that's for sure. Though, I think some people kinda felt that way all along.

If not Boston, I hope he goes to Dallas. That's a team I can root for. NOT the Heat or Lakers please.
