But really, someone's going to sign James Harden to a max contract, and that team is going to be very disappointed. I love Harden's game, but he's not a #1 guy. He'd be much better suited as a #2 or #3 guy.
So you name me the top playoff team where the #2 or #3 guy isn't making the max.

They can't. In order for the Hawks to sign one of either Howard or Paul they would need to renounce everyone but Smith. For both they have to renounce Smith, as well.

What Boston did they did by design because the free agent market dried up prematurely. So rather than renouncing all their bird rights players to overpay mediocrities they elected to reassemble the gang for one last run and add some support. But the Lee deal was a sign & trade (they sent out matching salary) and JET was an MLE signing. Unless you expect Paul to sign an MLE deal with the Clippers then they're going to have their cap space tied up.

OFFICIAL: OKC sends James Harden to Houston for Kevin Martin, Lamb, picks galore

Oklahoma City has traded James Harden to the Houston Rockets, league sources tell Y! Sports.

Adrian Wojnarowski ‏@WojYahooNBA
The Rockets send Kevin Martin, Jeremy Lamb and future draft considerations to the Thunder for Harden, sources tell Y! Sports.

Adrian Wojnarowski ‏@WojYahooNBA
As part of deal, Thunder will receive "significant" future draft picks from Houston, source tells Y! Sports.

Adrian Wojnarowski ‏@WojYahooNBA
Along with All-Star guard James Harden, the Thunder will send Cole Aldridge, Lazr Hayward and Daquan Cook to the Rockets, source tells Y!

Adrian Wojnarowski ‏@WojYahooNBA
Houston sends two 2013 first-round picks (from Dallas and Toronto) to Oklahoma CIty, source tells Y!

Adrian Wojnarowski ‏@WojYahooNBA
Houston also sends a 2013 second-round pick (via Charlotte) to Thunder.

Adrian Wojnarowski ‏@WojYahooNBA
Talks on an extension broke down between the Thunder and Harden on an extension, and Presti moved quickly to trade him.
TL;DR =

Rockets get James Harden, Cole Aldrich, Daequan Cook, Lazar Hayward
Thunder get Kevin Martin, Jeremy Lamb, draft picks

Re: TWITTER: OKC sends James Harden to Houston for Kevin Martin

If this is true OKC did well getting assets in return. However they are definitely worse off in terms of talent after the trade. Harden fills a specific need for them as Westbrook isn't much of a distributor. OKC gets no such player in return and will have to look for someone else to get Kevin Durant the ball in crunch time.

Re: TWITTER: OKC sends James Harden to Houston for Kevin Martin

I would say this trade is more about Jeremy Lamb then Kevin Martin. Martin is a FA after the year isnt he?

But anyways...Wow just wow that was fast

You never let a player dictate any deals your team makes - Jerry West

OKC got away like bandits. Martin is expiring and he can get by for one season. Lamb is on a rookie deal for years. And OKC knows how to make the most of those picks.

Undoubtedly Houston will give Harden what he wants. Houston now has three big money deals with guys who have never started a full season.

Houston knew this season was gonna be a dud. I guess they had to do something.
