Trade speculations around James Harden have been wild the last few days, as more and more teams are entering the conversation to acquire the 2018 MVP.

According to ESPN’s John Granato, the Toronto Raptors and the Boston Celtics are now the favorites to win Harden’s stakes.

“It’d be a package for Pascal Siakam and more or Jaylen Brown and more,” Granato reports. Harden has asked out of Houston a few weeks back with the Nets being his preffered destination.

As of now, the Philadelphia 76ers and the Miami Heat were also referred as potential destinations for the 8-time All-Star. The Rockets seem to demand offers that include a young potential superstar and multiple picks.

Earlier this month, Houston traded Russell Westbrook to Washington for John Wall and a future first-round pick.
