James Harden Traded to Rockets
The Oklahoma City Thunder couldn't reach a deal with James Harden for a contract extension. He was traded to the Houston Rockets.
The Rockets sent Kevin Martin, Jeremy Lamb and two 2013 first-round picks (from Dallas and Toronto) to Oklahoma CIty Thunder for Harden.
Along with Harden, the Thunder will also send Cole Aldridge, Lazar Hayward and Daequan Cook to the Rockets.
Contract extension talks between the Thunder and Harden broke down, and Thunder GM Sam Presti moved quickly to trade the guard.
