Harden traded to Brooklyn as part of 4-team blockbuster

The Houston Rockets have traded James Harden to the Brooklyn Nets in a blockbuster deal that also involves the Milwaukee Bucks, Indiana Pacers and Cleveland Cavaliers.

ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne and Adrian Adrian Wojnarowski were the first to report the trade.

In return, Houston receives seven future first-round picks from Brooklyn and one from Milwaukee. They also receive Pacers guard Victor Oladipo, Cavs guard Dante Exum and Nets small forward Rodions Kurucs.

The move puts an end to a months-long exit for Harden, who voiced his frustrations with the Rockets organization following Tuesday night’s 117-100 loss to the Lakers.
