This is what the Nets gave up to get James Harden from Houston 12 months ago:

Jarrett Allen and

Caris Levert and

Taurean Prince and

2021 1st rd pick swap,

2022 1st rd pick

2023 1st rd pick swap,

2024 1st rd pick,

2025 1st rd pick swap,

2026 1st rd pick,

2027 1st rd pick swap. – 9:20 AM Doug Smith @SmithRaps

Has James Harden somehow made Ben Simmons something of a sympathetic character in this whole thing?

That’s magic – 9:14 AM Jason Dumas @JDumasReports

James Harden has wanted this deal done for a while. He trusts Michael Rubin. He trusts Daryl Morey. He wants to play with Joel Embiid. The Nets & Sixers have been engaged in talks. It’s all about posturing. As I stated before, a game of cat & mouse. – 9:12 AM Michael Grange @michaelgrange

It would seem to me that James Harden doesn’t *exactly* have a tab on the pulse of the people. – 9:09 AM Dan Favale @danfavale

also: harden is definitely going to get backlash. already is. he chose brooklyn initially—over philly, no less. this is absurd.

but relative to how ridiculous this trade request should be, a certain someone has provided him with *more* than adequate cover for calling a mulligan. – 9:04 AM Tom Ziller @teamziller

Heel Harden is clearly the best Harden. This is a good direction for the character. – 9:01 AM Tommy Beer @TommyBeer

Dan Favale @danfavale

the idea that harden is worried about public backlash is interesting given his extremely public indifference at times on the court and the wildly public leaking of his fear of public backlash to the most prominent nba news breaker in the biz – 8:54 AM Stefan Bondy @SBondyNYDN

James Harden scared of public backlash so instead sits out games and makes his discontent known through back channels. Lame stuff. Time to look in the mirror. Never took a team to the Finals. Chris Paul didn’t want to play with him. Maybe give up the ball and problem is you. – 8:54 AM Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer

congrats to harden on formally dropping his informal trade request – 8:47 AM Chris Mannix @SIChrisMannix

James Harden wanted out of Houston. James Harden reportedly now wants out of Brooklyn. Among the questions Sixers brass has to ask: Is it really worth trading for—and presumably lavishing a new deal worth more than a quarter of a billion—on a player this unpredictable? – 8:45 AM Vivek Jacob @vivekmjacob

Hey James Harden, do you want out of your second franchise in consecutive seasons? pic.twitter.com/erTBbbGYir – 8:45 AM Bobby Marks @BobbyMarks42

James Harden said it was “not about the money” when he did not sign an extension. If he is not traded by 3PM ET, we will find out if that is correct.

The cap space route for Philly would cost Harden between $70-$100M plus diminish a roster that he would be signing with. – 8:41 AM Tommy Beer @TommyBeer

Hahahahhaha

Harden wants to be traded but hasn’t leaked that he wants to be traded until he just leaked that he wants to be traded

Update: Sixers have refused to include Tyrese Maxey in any deal with Brooklyn. Nets have countered with an asking price of Simmons, Curry, Thybulle, and Drummond.
