James Harden Trade Rumors: Latest News, Updates With Talks For Rockets Star ‘Coming Fast’

Only nine games in the 2020-21 season, it looks like James Harden’s time in Houston is over.

Trade talks quickly escalated after Harden stepped onto the podium on Tuesday night after the Rockets’ loss to the Lakers and essentially put his trade request straight into the microphone.

“I love this city. I literally did everything I could,” said Harden. “I mean, this situation is crazy. It’s something that I don’t think can be fixed. Thank you.”

Now the Rockets appear determined to ship the eight-time All-Star ASAP. Which commercial suitor will land Harden? And how much will it cost to get it?
