New York :
At last, after months of a completely fractured relationship, the Houston Rockets and James Harden parted ways, It was not easy at all and so the bizarre and surreal massive change that had to take place for the break to happen.
James Harden had his way and is now a new Brooklyn Nets player.
This was reported by journalist Shams Chanaria through his official Twitter account, stating that both quintets reached an agreement which also involves the Indiana Pacers and the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Rockets are acquiring Caris LeVert in James Harden deal from Brooklyn and sending LeVert to Indiana to acquire two-time All-Star Victor Oladipo – in addition to the four first-round picks and four draft pick swaps, sources said. https://t.co/3Tsm0dErtP

Be careful, because it is complicated: on the one hand, lThe Rockets welcome Victor Oladipo, Dante Exum and Rodions KurucsIn addition to four first-round picks and four draft changes, lPacers host Caris LeVert and a second-round pick, while Jarrett Allen and Taurean Prince arrive at the Cavaliers, all this for a single player to reach the Nets. Complicated, but Harden got away with it.
With this move, the Brooklyn team is consolidated as the favorite in the Eastern Conference, with at least three players who will be in the Hall of Fame and with their sights set on dethroning LeBron James’ also very powerful team in Los Angeles.
