Finally, a trade that does not involve James Harden being on the move. This is a deal that would involve him remaining with the Houston Rockets and gaining another piece to pair with himself and John Wall. It would feature the Golden State Warriors and Andrew Wiggins.

The Warriors are in need of help beyond the arc now with Klay Thompson missing the upcoming season with a torn Achilles. If they choose to make a move, there are plenty of options out there and some are currently on the Rockets.

Both teams like to play fast and shoot a lot of threes so a deal between the two sides would make plenty of sense. Eric Gordon could help fill the void left behind by Thompson’s injury while Wiggins can provide a small forward option for the Rockets.

The talks around Houston have been dominated by Russell Westbrook and James Harden. Westbrook is now in Washington and for now, Harden is still a member of the Rockets. The franchise could go two ways. They could choose to send Harden away in a trade or keep him and build around their scoring dynamo.

We have seen plenty of deals that would send Harden away, but this is one that would keep him in place and build around him. Let’s take a look at this potential deal between the Houston Rockets and Golden State Warriors.
