HOUSTON (AP) – The Brooklyn Nets have agreed to acquire three-time scoring champion James Harden from the Houston Rockets, a deal that reunites him with Kevin Durant and gives him the move that he has sought for weeks, said a person familiar with the situation. Harden is going to the Nets as part of a four-team deal that also involves Indiana and Cleveland, according to the person who spoke to The Associated Press Wednesday on condition of anonymity because the trade call with the NBA, which signs off on all deals, has not been completed. The deal was struck less than 24 hours after Harden seemed to deliver a farewell address to the Rockets Tuesday night.
