    We know there's tensions. We know Harden broke protocol to party in Vegas. And that's pretty much it. We don't really know where either side is really at right now despite the efforts of national media to try to squeeze daily content out of this.
    I guess so. He's doubled down if you believe the media reports. And if you believe the media when they report what his mother supposedly said.

    Only thing I heard is Rockets wanna trade Harden sooner rather then later. Which means any new contracts cant be traded this soon like Bam/Dragic combo if that's what the Rockets want for example.

    The Rockets should at least wait until the trade deadline in late March. I would be very surprise if Harden is move before the season starts on Tuesday.

    Yeah but when was the last time a big name star asked for a trade and was milked until trade deadline from preseason asking out? Yeah short offseason and shorter season. But I doubt Rockets want the media circus having fun with media dodging questions all the time. Rest of the team probably wants to move on as well. Knowing a star player wants to be gone and wont be there rest of the season anyway yet takes most of the shots.

    76ers need to cough up Simmons. But Simmons/Wall combo sounds lame from a Rockets stand point. Not sure who would take Wall at this point. Also team up of Wall friend Cousins now.

    Heats package of Herro/Robinson and fillers of Iggy and Kelly is good.

    Nets package is iffy since Dinwiddie is a possible rental or highly soon to be paid besides LeVert and Allen package?

    Not sure Bucks offered anything or yet talked with Giannis to break up the old core to land Harden. Since after all maybe bad blood or whatever with the two with Giannis not picking Harden for All Star game and whipping a ball in his face previous season. Yeah Middleton,DDV,Brook trade package isn't sexy one bit.

    But the Nets package not that exciting either. It comes down to if Heat or 76ers go for it.

    Shocked Harden didn't suggest the Celtics at all? They could offer up Walker/Brown package and be done with it. Go into the season with Tatum and Harden duo.

    As a 76ers fan I don't want Harden in Boston.

    Then really trading him to the Denver Nuggets makes sense also at this point

    Houston in the trade I would definitely ask for Michael Porter Jr, Bol Bol in terms of young stars to build around and of course get those 3 draft picks lottery protected of course

    Denver in exchange get Harden and you pair him up with Jokic and Jamal Murray...NEW BIG 3 IN DENVER

    Houston gets younger and they can build around Wall, Cousins, Gordon, Tucker, Wood, Porter Jr, Bol Bol, etc

    If Harden came to Boston and played for my Celtics it would be a wrap...we would be a problem in the East

    Like the same problem with Kyrie. Harden would destroy Stevens schemes and will get of anyone who tries to run the point besides him [emoji1751]

    Yeah you have a point but then again if Harden went to Boston...we would be a favorite to win it all especially if you pair Harden up with Tatum

    I think the only teams that could make a legit package for Harden, that Houston would have any kind of interest in, are teams with multiple young stars, making one expendable, who are also contenders.

    IMO, that means Philly, Boston, Denver. Otherwise, nothing moves the needle unless itís a bad team giving LOTS of draft picks

    Otherwise, you let this play out. Maybe he changes his mind like Hakeem did (although highly unlikely). Maybe some roster shuffles around the league in a few months opens up some new trade partners.

    I actually think this is the ideal spot for him, as long as we are getting Brown in return. I canít imagine that team not winning the East with Harden and Tatum and good coaching.

    Harden + Kemba on defence = disaster

    Then you never seen him in the playoffs before like ever. And he will slap Tatum's hand away when he tries to give him advice, just ask CP3 [emoji1751]

    They better off with Kyrie cause at least he's clutch in the playoffs, just ask Lebron
