CJ McCollum is not of the opinion that James Harden will join the Brooklyn Nets next season.

McCollum predicted that the Houston Rockets will not let Harden go and sign with the Nets.

“I don’t think that’s gonna happen. I don’t think they’re gonna trade him there. I like LeVert. I like Dinwiddie, I like Jarrett Allen. I like the picks.

But for Houston, you went all in on James, you brought in James, like his preferred players,” CJ McCollum said on Complex‘s “Load Management” NBA podcast.

Harden wants to join the Nets, but the Rockets have taken their time to consider the situation and how they move forward.

Harden has three years and $133M left on his current contract.
