t has risen in the NBA market, it looks like James Harden could leave the Houston Rockets. Namely, it is turbulent in that franchise these days. General manager Daryl Mori left office on Thursday, leaving a lot of ambiguity.
Coach Mike D'antoni also left after four years, so Houston said that he wanted to finish with 'small ball' basketball. The departure of the general manager could also mean that James Harden will leave the team because he was left without a man from whom he received a lot of support within the franchise.
Now, the American media write that Harden was left "alone on the ship" and that is why there is strong speculation that he could leave. And that to the Los Angeles Clippers. According to a journalist from the "Clipperholics" portal, the franchise from Los Angeles could be a destination for Harden if Paul George goes to Brooklyn.
The Rockies, on the other hand, would get players like Dinwiddie, or Jarrett Allen. At the moment, everything is just about rumors, because Harden still has a contract for another three years with a franchise from Texas worth 132,000,000 dollars.
That's why the newspapers from Houston saw Harden in the team from Texas, but in fact only for another year. If the Clippers make the right moves, maybe Harden could change the midfield during this break.
Harden and Kawhi
Harden was targeted by the Clippers last summer when the team was looking for a star to play in a pair with Kawhi Leonard.
Houston didn't want to do business then, but now little has changed. The best chances are given to this transfer in case Paul George moves to Brooklyn, or to Houston, along with Landry Shamet and Mfiondu Kabengele. It will certainly be a big shock if Harden decides to leave Houston.
Harden is the best player of their team and the main link without which we cannot imagine the current Houston. A synonym for Houston today is precisely this man- Harden With his departure, the team will lose a lot and it will be difficult to find an adequate replacement for a player like this who is one of the best in his position.
Houston will have to work hard if he wants to replace Harden. Whether this will really happen remains questionable. Many think that Harden will still stay and try to achieve something with Houston, but on the other hand he may want to play in a much better team and try to show that he is still one of the best players.
