MORE: James Harden trade grades

It puts an end to a messy divorce between Harden and the Rockets, after the disgruntled eight-time All-Star made no secret of his desire to depart as his frustrations boiled over post-game on Tuesday, sparking criticism from teammates John Wall and DeMarcus Cousins.

Attention now turns to Brooklyn’s new super team and how Harden fits alongside Durant and Irving – if and when he returns from his personal absence – in first-year head coach Steve Nash’s quest to deliver a championship to the Nets.

Harden, who is eyeing a maiden NBA title, had called Houston home since 2012, guiding the Rockets to two Western Conference Finals and three semifinal appearances after his acquisition from the Thunder.

The issue of Harden signing for the Nets is centered on possession and distribution, given he, Durant and Irving are ball carriers.

In 2019-20, points scored by Harden and points scored off his assists averaged 52.4 per game.
