James Harden trade Watch has finally come to an end. Harden an eight time all star is on his way to join Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving in Brooklyn. The Nets know their new big three can make them championship contenders. Multiple teams bid on Harden including Miami, Philly, Denver, Milwaukee but in the end the Net's found a way to keep Kyrie Irving and get a deal done.
The trade is a rare four team deal involving the Pacers, Rockets, Nets and Cavs.
The Rockets receive Victor Oladipo, Rodions Kurucs, four 1st round picks and four pick swaps.
The Nets receive James Harden
The Pacers receive Caris Levert , 2nd round pick
The Cavs receive Jarrett Allen and Taurean Prince
The Rockets wanted a star in return and they could have that if Oladipo returns to form. The Pacers have long coveted Levert and Oladipo was more available than publicly admitted.
The Cavs really like both young players they got and the Milwaukee 1st is likely a late one.
