James Harden has been the biggest name on the trading block all throughout the NBA offseason. With regular-season games beginning, he is still in the Houston Rockets but that could change sooner than later. He has expressed interest in joining a contender as his next team.

The Rockets already traded Russell Westbrook to the Washington Wizards. They have made it clear that some changes are going to be made within the organization. Harden has been linked to teams such as the Brooklyn Nets and Philadelphia 76ers. Los Angeles has opened the door about a possible trade to pair Harden and Kawhi Leonard.

The Clippers are looking to finish better this season than they did in the bubble. They signed Paul George to a massive contract extension despite his poor play during the NBA postseason.

Many thought that he would be featured in NBA trade rumors but it looks like Los Angeles wants to hang onto him. If that notion changes, he could be on the move for a player such as Harden.

If these two teams were to get together for a deal, it would certainly shock the NBA. Let’s take a look at what it might take for James Harden to be sent to the Los Angeles Clippers.
