Rockets guard James Harden is headed to Brooklyn as part of a multi-team deal that involves significant assets from both the Nets and Pacers. According to the reports, the Rockets will receive multiple first-round picks from the Nets and Pacers guard Victor Oladipo. The Pacers, after jettisoning Oladipo, are set to receive Nets guard Caris LeVert. The Cavaliers are also involved as a fourth team in the deal.

The Athletic’s Shams Charania detailed the move once all the teams involved came into focus.

ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne and Adrian Wojnarowski highlighted the draft assets that the Rockets are set to receive shortly after the news surfaced.

In regards to the Cavaliers, Charania broke down the early framework of the trade in a team-by-team list.

According to Wojnarowski, the Nets will also receive a second-round pick from the Cavs in exchange for Jarrett Allen.

ESPN’s Bobby Marks explained that the Rockets must clear a roster spot in order for the trade to work.

Harden’s desire to move on from the Rockets emerged prior to the start of training camp. The Nets were rumored to be atop his list of potential destinations. Harden, who secured the NBA MVP award for his work in the 2017-18 season, is under contract through the 2022-23 season (the final year contains a player option).

Stay tuned, we will continue to update the trade details as they arise.
