The best trade the Warriors could offer for Rockets’ James Harden

The Golden State Warriors and Houston Rockets are two of the top contenders in the Western Conference. Both teams have a lot of superstar power, but Klay Thompson will miss another entire season due to an offseason Achilles injury. Could Golden State and Houston come together on a James Harden trade?

According to a report from Shams Charania of The Athletic, the Warriors did discuss the option of trading for Harden with the Rockets this offseason.

Charania did not report how serious the talks may have gotten. Since then, the Warriors have gone out and acquired Kelly Oubre in a trade with the Oklahoma City Thunder. They also were able to add James Wiseman with the No. 2 overall pick in the 2020 NBA Draft.

Can you imagine a “Big Three” of Stephen Curry, Thompson, and Harden? It seems like something that would be impossible to accomplish. However, the Warriors were able to put Kevin Durant with Curry and Thompson.

Last season, Harden was once again arguably the best all-around player in the NBA. He didn’t end up winning the MVP award, but he put up massive numbers. Harden averaged 34.3 points per game to go along with 7.5 assists and 6.6 rebounds.

This may not be something that will happen soon, but the Warriors and Rockets have had a dialogue. Perhaps a trade could come around prior to the NBA trade deadline.

Either way, let’s dive in and take a look at a potential trade between the Warriors and Rockets that would send James Harden to Golden State.
