The Beard is going to Brooklyn!
After making it very clear he wanted out of Houston and was done with the Rockets, James Harden was finally traded on Wednesday afternoon as the 2018 NBA MVP was dealt to the Brooklyn Nets in a blockbuster deal.
The rumoured landing spots for Harden were narrowed down to Philadelphia and Brooklyn on Wednesday morning, and it became official hours later. As you can probably expect, the reaction from basketball fans were all over the place with Harden now joining forces with former teammate Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving and getting the out he wanted for so long.
It quickly turned into a three-team trade as the Cleveland Cavaliers got involved and acquired Jarrett Allen and Taurean Prince in the deal, but then another massive move was made moments later with Victor Oladipo getting sent to Houston in a package deal for Caris LeVert.
It was a very wild few minutes for basketball Twitter, but that’s just part of the reason why we all love sports.
Who won this trade?
