League sources told ESPN and The Athletic on Wednesday that Houston will receive Victor Oladipo, Dante Exum, Rodions Kurucs and multiple draft picks in exchange for the disgruntled Harden. The Pacers will get Caris LeVert and a second-rounder in the four-team trade, while the Cavaliers will be sent Jarrett Allen and Taurean Prince.
The Rockets will receive Brooklyn's three unprotected first-round draft picks -- 2022, 2024 and 2026 -- in the trade, plus the teams will swap first-rounders in 2021, 2023, 2025 and 2027, according to the outlets. Houston also gets the Cavaliers' 2022 first-round selection, via the Milwaukee Bucks, and are sending a 2023 second-rounder to the Pacers.
The mega trade reunites the 31-year-old Harden with former Oklahoma City Thunder teammate Kevin Durant in Brooklyn. The deal positions the Nets, who also have All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving, as a championship contender in the Eastern Conference.
The trade was agreed to after the Rockets decided to keep Harden away from Wednesday's practice. On Tuesday, the former NBA MVP said Houston isn't "good enough" to compete for a title this season.
Harden, a three-time scoring champion and eight-time All-Star selection, has averaged 24.8 points and 10.4 assists in eight games this season. Entering the 2020-21 campaign, he had three consecutive seasons above 30 points per game.
