    Rockets are too tied up in making it work or refusing to negotiate with certain teams that Harden is just going to get a phantom injury and sit this season, to essentially be on an expiring next season.
    Do you honestly think theyd hold out on teams to do him any favours? I mean he pissed off CP3, made Westbrook want to leave and is now pissing off John Wall. Hes even come out himself and said the situation cant be fixed.

    The reason hes still a Rocket is because teams are offering peanuts for him and will continue to do so until the Rockets give in. Its no secret how much of a drama Queen he is now.

    Weve even seen players from around the league comment on him being their friend or how they just want him to be happy. Have you heard a single player come out and say, I want my team to trade for him.

    Valid point.

    Both situations took time too. Rumors first surfaced of Kawhi wanting out in January 2018 and he wasn't traded until July 2018.

    Butler requested a trade in September 2018 (but showed signs of wanting out all way back in July 2018) and wasn't traded until November 2018.

    Rockets just needs time to get their head outta their butt and come to grips with reality. Harden has only wanted out since November.

    If I'm John Wall, I go to the Rockets and tell them to either get James the hell out of Houston or I'm gone

    That's a lot of fillers though (unless your main piece going back is already a high contract). You have to maintain too a minimum # of players on your roster, so you can't just send like 5 guys over (that equal between 40-44 mil in salary) and only take Harden back. By the time said team sends over their top piece plus fillers, you're not left with much of a roster.

    Not saying it can't be done, but it's not as easy as the JB or Kawhi trades were.

    Which is why I mentioned PG. A trade was worked out for him almost instantly. Im just surprised the same cant be done for James. Could it be because nobody wants to play with him?

    Does he make a mean pot roast or something? Because the 10-15 minutes hes been playing each game dont seem like theyd be missed that much.
