Even before the season, Harden informed the management of the “Rockets” team that he wanted to leave the unit. The star also said he would be happy to be replaced by the Nets or Philadelphia 76ers, but it turned out on Wednesday that Harden would join his former teammate Kevin Durent.
Durent and Harden had joint training this summer, after which they began to talk louder about the reunion of former Oklahoma City Thunder players.
The Clavland Cavaliers and Indiana Pacers are known to have taken part in the impressive exchange. To win Harden, the Nets parted ways with Kerry Levert, Kuruch, four first-round drafts, and four other rounds. The Houston club also won Cavaliers player Danti Exuma.
Meanwhile, the Cavaliers have acquired Geretta Allen and Taurine Prince from the deal.
Less than 30 minutes later, it turned out that the choice of Leverts and one of the second round drafts had gone to the “Pacers”, who therefore divorced their leader Viktor Oladipo, who will join Houston.
The Nets’ new win, Hardens, has gone on eight games this season, with an average of 24.8 points, 5.1 rebounds and 10.4 assists. Meanwhile, the second loudest surname in this transaction, Oladipo, has scored an average of 20 points in nine games, won 5.7 balls under the baskets, and scored 4.2 times.
Kurucs has managed to win five matches in the field this season, in which, on average, 0.6 points, equal rebounds and 0.4 assists have been scored.
As a result of the exchange, Harden moved from the Thunder to the Rockets in 2013 and was a regular All-Star player for the next eight seasons. During the 2017/2018 season, Harden was recognized as the most valuable player in the NBA, but for the past six years, he has been regularly among the top three basketball players in this award.
Harden’s current contract will expire in the 2021/2022 season. He will earn about $ 110 million during this period. He also had the opportunity to extend his partnership with the Rockets in the 2022/2023 season, earning $ 46.7 million (€ 39.6 million).
The Rockets, with three victories in nine games in the Western Conference, are in 14th place, but the Nets are in seventh place with six successes in 12 matches in the Eastern Conference.
It is planned to play 72 games in the NBA Main Event, which is ten less than usual.
The league has started the season without spectators present in the arenas, as the restrictions of the coronavirus prohibit larger public gatherings in the premises.
