Harden has been linked to the Heat, Milwaukee Bucks, Brooklyn Nets, Philadelphia 76ers and Denver Nuggets this off-season after he requested a trade from the Rockets. He now appears unlikely to be traded before the start of the NBA season on Tuesday.
Harden was asked Monday if his feelings have changed regarding the trade request, but the Rockets star declined to respond to the question.
The Rockets start their campaign with a game against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Wednesday in Houston.
Harden, 31, led the NBA in points per game (34.3) for a third-consecutive season in 2019-20. He is under contract through 2021-22, but has a player option in 2022-23.
