James Harden TRADED to Rockets

James Harden turned down a four-year, $52 million contract extension offer from the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Harden is seeking a maximum-level deal worth $60 million over four years.

The Thunder have until Wednesday to sign Harden to a contract extension or allow him the opportunity to become a restricted free agent on July 1.

Woah, that's a lot of money to turn down.

He's not Franchise material in my opinion, but I'm sure somebody will pay him.

I don't think he's worth that much honestly. Wasn't there reports that he wasn't happy last year?

Yep. If I were James Harden, I would seriously consider setting aside that extra 2 mil/year and not have impending free agency bothering him and his teammates this season. No way the Thunder offer a max extension when they can match any offer next summer regardless. Or are max extensions less than max contracts?

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.

Franchise money? He's like Ginobili. No 6th man ever gets a max deal, even if he's starter caliber.

If this causes the OKC nucleus to implode, sucks for them. It takes some compromise to keep both Harden and Ibaka.

Yes they will with expiring contracts like Cp3, Odom, billups, green, hill, Barnes, hollins, turiaf.

Still would not be enough unless the cap goes up to ~$61M and CP3 walks, if CP3 resigns the Clippers will only probably have no capspace.

He's a 6th Man by design, not because he's incapable of being a starter. He's not Jamal Crawford.

No they can't they would have to renounce CP3's rights to get his cap hold off their books.
