James Harden has broken his silence on the talk regarding his trade request and says he’s just focused on being in Houston, per ESPN’s Tim McMahon.

The superstar guard has made no secret of his desire to sever ties with the Rockets ahead of the upcoming season but, speaking to reporters on Wednesday, claimed his focus is on his current team.

That’s about all Harden had to say on a possible trade out of Houston. On the back of Giannis Antetokounmpo signing a supermax deal with the Milwaukee Bucks, it’s possible Miami Heat president Pat Riley ramps up his interest in the guard, with Harden having added the NBA finalists to his list of preferred destinations.
