James Harden is reportedly the latest member of the Brooklyn Nets.
According to ESPN and The Athletic’s Shams CharaniaThe Houston Rockets traded Harden as part of a four-team deal involving the Indiana Pacers and the Cleveland Cavaliers.
ESPN reported that Nets had sent a Houston guard, Caris LeVert.
According to Charania, Nets traded Jarrett Allen at the center, transferred Taurean Prince to the Cavaliers, Houston transferred guard Dante Exum from Cleveland, and Rodions Kurucs from Brooklyn.
When the league approves the deal, Harden reunites with former Oklahoma City Thunder teammate Kevin Durant.
The Associated Press kept Harden away from Wednesday’s practice after the Rockets said in a post-match interview after Houston’s defeat to the Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday that they were “not enough” to compete for the NBA championship. After that, he reported that the deal was completed.
Harden reportedly appeared late for the camp because he was dissatisfied with the Rockets for some time.
USA Today reportedly was fined $ 50,000 by the league in December for violating the NBA’s health and safety protocol after the video caught him in a club without a mask.
