His teammate DeMarcus Cousins did not appreciate the comments made on the Rockets. “The disrespect started way before any interview,” he said per Marc Stein.

“Other 14 the guys in the locker room have done nothing to him. For us to be on the receiving end of disrespectful comments and antics…it’s unfair to the rest of the guys in the locker room,” Cousins continued per Alykhan Bijani.

According to latest rumors, the Philadelphia 76ers are prepared to offer Ben Simmons, among other players, in exchange for Harden as trade rumors are heating up.
