James Harden will not be a good addition to the roster of the Brooklyn Nets, according to former NBA player Kenny Anderson.

The No.2 pick of the 1991 NBA Draft believes Harden does not fit with the Nets.

“He’s an awesome player, but not a good fit for the Brooklyn Nets. They got Kyrie, they got Kevin Durant and let’s build around those two guys and let out young guys grow with Dinwiddie there, LeVert; we got a good team and a young nucleus.

Steve Nash is a rookie coach…let him build and I think we’re gonna be good this year coming up. But with Harden, he would’ve changed all of that a little bit. I really believe that,” Anderson told Brandon “Scoop B” Robinson of Heavy.com on Heavy Live with Scoop B, via Nets Wire.

Harden, who still has three years and $133M left on his contract with the Houston Rockets, has expressed his desire to join the Nets.
