Jan, 15th 2021 – Houston Rockets have traded star player James Harden to the Brooklyn Nets. This is just a day after he criticized team-mates in a post-match rant.

Harden, the top scorer in the NBA for the past three seasons, will join the Nets in a deal involving three teams. The 2018 NBA Most Valuable Player and an eight-time all-star, Harden, 31, has been reportedly looking for a move after growing frustrated at Houston.

They are the second bottom in the Western Conference with just three wins.

Nets general manager Sean Marks said, “Adding an All-NBA player such as James to our roster better positions our team to compete against the league’s best.

He added, “James is one of the most prolific scorers and playmakers in our game, and we are thrilled to bring his special talents to Brooklyn.”

Harden was discontented by Rockets defeat to the LA Lakers on Tuesday. He was asked to miss Wednesday training having said they were not good enough to be title contender. This was after the 117-100 loss at the lakers.

Speaking to reporters, he said, “We’re just not good enough. Chemistry, talent-wise, just everything. I love this city. I literally have done everything that I can.”

He added, “I mean, this situation is crazy. It’s something that I don’t think can be fixed.”
