Houston traded James Harden to the Brooklyn Nets with secondary trades through Cleveland and Indiana.

Houston Receives:
- Victor Oladipo (Indiana), Dante Exum (Brooklyn), Rodions Kurucs (Brooklyn)
- Brooklyn unprotected 1st round picks in 2022, 2024, 2026
- Pick swaps with Brooklyn in 2021, 2023, 2025, and 2027
- Cleveland's first round pick (through Milwaukee) in 2022

Brooklyn receives:
- James Harden (Houston)

Cleveland receives:
- Jarret Allen (Brooklyn), Taurean Prince (Brooklyn)

Indiana receives:
- Caris LeVert (Brooklyn)
- 2nd round pick

That is one hell of a complicated trade.

I was hoping the raptors might be in on harden. It seemed the only route back to contender status I knew of aside from Kawhi next year (which seems even less likely).

I'm kind of hoping that it blows up in the Nets face with Irving, Durant and Harden on the same team. I'm cheering for Nash, but I'm not sure how it works with those egos on the floor together.

On the Kawhi front, I'm not sure why the Raptors would do that unless the Nets experiment blows up. The Raptors certainly appear to be more than a Leonard away from competing with the Nets.

seahawk:
Raptors did not need Harden. Personally don't think he would be a good fit. The spot that they need help is in the post. Baynes is starting to find his groove, but they still need another option.

Nik:
The Raps have traded Norm Powell to Portland for Gary Trent Jr. and Rodney Hood.

Interestingly the Raptors also acquired Gary Trent Sr from Portland in 97-98.  Not a bad acquisition.  Putting up 15 PPG as a 22 year old.  Norm is the better player though.

I'm sure its all posturing but not a lot of positive rumbling about a Lowry trade.
