Brooklyn Nets, Houston Rockets haven’t yet discussed a James Harden trade

The Brooklyn Nets have been increasingly linked to Houston Rockets superstar James Harden as the NBA’s moratorium period is approaching its end. Could a trade between the two teams for the former MVP happen? If so, it would form the next super team with Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving.

According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the Rockets continue to tell teams they plan to ‘run it back’ with Harden during the upcoming NBA season. There hasn’t been discussions between the Nets and Rockets yet.

It won’t be easy to build a contender around Harden in a loaded Western Conference. Teams like the reigning champion Los Angeles Lakers along with the Denver Nuggets and Los Angeles Clippers as the top threats require a cohesive unit led by multiple stars to get it done.

For the Rockets, they simply aren’t in a position to be able to pair Harden with another star. Russell Westbrook was supposed to be the answer but he no longer wants to play for the organization— recently requesting to be traded to a new NBA team.

The Nets are in a much different situation than the Rockets. With Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving set to join the lineup, adding Harden into the mix would form a dynamic trio that should strike fear into just about any NBA opponent.

In order to get a trade completed with the Rockets, the Nets would need to be prepared to part with a substantial amount of compensation. Parting with intriguing players like Caris LeVert, Spencer Dinwiddie, Jarrett Allen would have to be a minimum, as well as many future 1st round picks.
