The 2018 NBA MVP, James Harden, said it will not be difficult for the Houston Rockets to add Carmelo Anthony to their roster.

“Coming off an MVP season, now you got to add Carmelo Anthony, it’s going to be easy,” Harden told The Players’ Tribune. “The transition is easy. When you got that many talented, high-IQ guys around, who love to communicate and love to figure things out, the job is easy,” he added.

Harden also mentioned that communication will be crucial for the team’s success: “The job gets hard when you don’t communicate. That’s what it’s about. That’s where it’s misconstrued.

You got guys that are, ‘Oh, how are they going to work?’ As long as we’re on the court and we communicate, things will be a breeze.”
