James Harden has publicly admitted that there is no way to salvage his relationship with the Houston Rockets. After nine games played this season, The Beard still wants to be traded.

There are signs on the court that he wants to move to another team. For the first time since the 2011-2012 season, he has finished four games in a row with 20 or less points. Harden has been averaging 30-plus points per game for the last three seasons.

Sports analyst Shannon Sharpe is of the opinion that the Rockets should not hesitate and take the best trade available for Harden because his market value is dropping due to him not putting the effort on the court.

“James Harden has made it clear he wants out. He’s not even trying, so there’s no way he can stay on the roster. This is the longest streak he’s had 20 or less points since 2011-2012,” Sharpe said on UNDISPUTED.
