It is likely James Harden will start the training camp with the Houston Rockets on December 1st, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.
Such a scenario would mean there will be no deal between the Rockets and the Brooklyn Nets by December 1st.
Harden has expressed his desire to join Brooklyn and reunite with Kevin Durant and Mike D’Antoni.
However, Houston is not willing to let Harden go unless they receive ‘a young star and a massive picks package’, per Tim MacMahon of ESPN.
Harden has three years and $133M left on his contract with the Rockets.
