James Harden is ready to leave Houston and join Kevin Durant in Brooklyn.
The Rockets star guard has come to the point where he has turned down a huge extension offer from Houston.
Harden had a chance to become the first player to make $ 50 million a year in NBA history, as the Rockets MVP’s permanent contender denied a $ 103 million two-year extension – in addition to the three years he has left with the current deal. The Rockets are yet to make another $ 133 million, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.
The Nets and Rockets have discussed the situation, but “have not had a meaningful conversation,” Woj said.
In addition, Woj is reporting on Harden’s conversations with Durant and Kyrie Irving West has “risen in recent weeks.”
“So far, there is no indication that Rocket believes that networks can deliver a package that fits that profile,” Wojo wrote. “Harden believes the window to get behind the Houston championships is over, and building a super team with the nets is the best way for a title, sources said.”
