Harden to Rockets

As a surprise to most including James Harden, and the rest of the OKC players. James Harden was traded to the Houston Rockets on saturday night after failing to come to an agreement on an extension, which topped at 4yr./$55.5 million. That might seem like a lot to most but Harden wanted the Thunder to give him the max deal which was $4.5 million more than what they offered him. The deadline to finalize any deals was Wednesday but the Thunder felt that it would be a good idea to go ahead and handle it.The Thunder acquired guards Kevin Martin and Jeremy Lamb, two first-round picks and a second-round pick. Oklahoma City also sent center Cole Aldrich and forwards Daequan Cook and Lazar Hayward to Houston. Will this move help or hurt either team? I guess only time will tell.
