This reportedly marks the end of the James Harden era in Houston after eight-plus seasons. In 621 regular-season games as a Rocket, Harden posted averages of 29.6 points, 7.7 assists and 6.0 rebounds, earning league MVP honours in 2018, when Houston fell just one win shy of an NBA Finals berth.

Harden, an eight-time All-Star, seven-time All-NBA selection and three-time scoring champ will reunite with Kevin Durant in Brooklyn, as the duo spent three seasons as teammateswith the Oklahoma City Thunder.

The Nets are back in action on Thursday as they visit the New York Knicks while the Rockets are back on the floor Friday when they visit the San Antonio Spurs.
