Even though James Harden’s wish to be traded by the Houston Rockets failed to materialize during the offseason, it could still come through now when the season already began.

According to ESPN’s NBA insider Brian Windhorst, the Boston Celtics and the Toronto Raptors joined the Philadelphia 76ers, the Brooklyn Nets and the Miami Heat in making a “courtesy call” to the Rockets regarding possible Harden trade.

The Beard is averaging 39 points, 5 rebounds and 12.5 assists over two games that he played this season. Harden led the league in scoring last year with 34.3 points per game.
