There is a lot to uncover with this whole James Harden in saga in Houston, but it appears the main reason he wants to leave the Rockets organization is simple: he wants to win.

According to reports, Harden has apparently added Miami Heat and Milwaukee Bucks in addition to the Brooklyn Nets and Philadelphia 76ers as preferred trade destinations heading into the 2020/21 campaign.

The 31-year old star had requested a trade earlier this offseason, and purposely showed up late to training camp to make a statement. He now needs to produce six negative coronavirus tests in order to return to the court with his teammates.

He still has three years remaining on his four-year, $170 million contract extension.

One of the best pure shooters in the past decade is calling it quits.

Veteran shooting guard J.J. Redick has officially announced his decision to retire from the NBA after 15 seasons.

“As a 7-year-old boy, I dreamed of playing at Duke as I got older. I dreamed of playing in the NBA,” said Redick on his “The Old Man and the Three” podcast.

“The last 30 years of basketball have been beyond my wildest dreams. I never could have imagined that I would have played basketball for this long. After years of youth leagues, AAU, high school basketball, four years at Duke and 15 years in the NBA, I’m retiring from the game that I love so much.”
