The Brooklyn Nets have been considered the preferable destination of James Harden since Harden expressed his desire to move on from Houston.
After a couple of months, his desire became reality on Wednesday as the Nets pulled the trigger and came to an agreement with the Rockets for the blockbuster trade.
The trade is not official yet, but Brooklyn had to give up a huge amount of their future assets along with Jarrett Allen, Caris LeVert, Taurean Prince, and Rodions Kurucs to finalize the deal.
The Brooklyn Nets’ veteran DeAndre Jordan spoke on the departure of his former teammates giving his advice on the ‘tough part’ of the NBA business.

“It’s tough, especially for some guys who this is their first time dealing with that experience, got drafted here, had a lot of great times here, grew a lot as players, as young men here,” Jordan said after the Nets win over the Knicks on Wednesday.
“But you know, this is the tough part of the business that nobody ever wants to experience, but it is a reality. And I wish those guys the best. I had a lot of fun with those guys and learning with them, from them, grinding with those guys the past season and a half. It’s been a great ride, I wish them nothing but success.”
