    I like the trade for OKC. Harden was bluffing demanding max when he is not max player. So they traded him, avoided drama and got J.Lamb who may end up better then Harden plus K.Mart is great scorer as well. Great, great job by OKC's FO.
    Exum = Biggest bust in Jazz history.

    Man, Kevin Martin's expiring a huge factor here. I wonder if we could've pieced together a similar trade for Harden.



    Jefferson, Burks, GS pick for Harden and filler?

    Also, Harden was offered 4 years 55 million from OKC. He rejected the offer.



    What an asshat. Enjoy Houston Mediocrity.



    PKM: Harden will have career highs in every stat, methinks. Except for shooting percentages, probably.

    I'm going to be honest. I did not expect this at all.

    Daryl Morey did exactly what he wanted to do. He gathered a lot of assets and was able to acquire someone who at least has the potential to be a star. And the Rockets didn't even have to suffer through this season with all of those rookies.

    OK so help me out here. The Rockets give up 2 players and get 4 back that all have contracts for this season. Doesn't that put the Rockets at 20 guerented contracts going into this year? Who are they going to cut. I was thinking when they made a trade they would want to give more away than they got back.

    I'm surprised they gave up Aldrich in the deal. Overall a good trade for OKC since Martin can slide into Harden's role pretty well. They did the opposite of adressing their big man issues though. Howard and Gasol are going to work Ibaka and Perkins, if he can stay healthy.
