Brooklyn Acquires Harden In Blockbuster Trade
ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported a blockbuster deal Wednesday afternoon involving the Brooklyn Nets and James Harden.
Harden will be reunited with his former Oklahoma City Thunder teammate Kevin Durant. Harden and Durant lost in the 2010 NBA Finals to the Miami Heat. While Durant and Harden will be wearing the same jersey again, the future of Kyrie Irving is still in question. Irving has missed the past few games for the Nets due to personal reasons.
There is no timetable on Irving's return. Despite not having Irving or Harden, the Nets were still able to defeat the New York Knicks 116-109 at Madison Square Garden Wednesday night. Durant led the Nets with twenty six points.
When will James Harden debut for the Brooklyn Nets? The debut for the multiple time NBA All Star and former league most valuable player award winner is still to be determined. The Nets return to the court Saturday against the Orlando Magic. After hosting the Magic this weekend, the Nets tangle wth the Milwaukee Bucks on Monday night. You can hear Nets-Bucks on 104.5 The Team. Coverage is set to begin at 7pm
