Houston Rockets guard James Harden is warming up to the idea of a trade to the Brooklyn Nets that would potentially pair him with Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant, sources told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, Ramona Shelburne, and Zach Lowe. Harden is apparently still committed to the Rockets.

Some players that the Nets are willing to give to Rockets to bring Harden to Brooklyn include Spencer Dinwiddie, Caris LeVert, Taurean Prince and Jarrett Allen., Esnaashari says.

Harden has been increasingly uneasy about the Rockets' ability to compete for an National Basketball Association title and has been considering the possibility of pushing to play elsewhere before his contract expires, sources said.

Russell Westbrook reportedly wants out of Houston, though he has shot down the talk of him no longer wanting to play with Harden.

The most common psychiatric illness diagnosis among COVID-19 patients was anxiety , including adjustment disorder, generalized anxiety disorder and post-traumatic stress disorder.

The Rockets, Wojnarowski added, have been telling teams their intention is to "run it back" with Harden this season and, so far, there have been no trade discussions between Houston and Brooklyn.

The trio of Kyrie Irving, James Harden, and Kevin Durant sounds very good on paper. "But according to SNY sources, the support for such a trade wasn't universal". Harden to the Nets might just be the blockbuster trade that shifts the balance of power in the National Basketball Association.

Harden, 31, has been an All-Star in all eight seasons since arriving in Houston, winning MVP in 2017-18 and finishing among the top three in voting four other times in the past six years, and claiming the NBA's past three scoring titles.
