NBA: Harden turns down $50M, wants Brooklyn trio with Durant, Irving

Houston Rockets superstar James Harden has turned down a massive 2-year, $103 million extension offer from his team, signaling that he wants a change in scenery.

As reported by ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, Harden seems to be interested in forming a superteam with Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving with the Brooklyn Nets.

After turning down such a lucrative offer, it is obvious that Harden is focused on forming a star-studded trio with the Nets.

Brooklyn still managed to make the playoffs in the bubble, in spite of Durant’s injury and Irving sitting out.

Adding Harden would fortify the Nets’ roster and catapult them to the upper ranks in the Eastern Conference.

Harden has played several seasons with the Rockets, leading them to the playoffs multiple times and even winning the NBA season MVP award in 2018.
