The Houston Rockets have no intention to trade James Harden before the start of the NBA season on December 22.

As Tim MacMahon of ESPN reports, the Rockets have not changed their plan and want a very lucrative package in order to let Harden go.

Following the trade of Russell Westbrook to the Washington Wizards for John Wall, it is unknown if Harden will eventually decide to remain with the Rockets.
