Brooklyn Nets acquire James Harden in four-team deal, Rockets acquire Victor Oladipo and multiple draft picks

The Brooklyn Nets have landed James Harden.

The Houston Rockets have agreed to trade Harden to the Nets. This comes in a three-team deal that will also include the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The Rockets will acquire Caris LeVert, Dante Exum, Rodions Kurucs and four first-round picks while the Cavs will receive Jarrett Allen and Tauren Prince.

In a separate move, the Rockets are reportedly re-routing LeVert to the Indiana Pacers in exchange for two-time All-Star Victor Oladipo.

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 teammates with 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.
