James Harden turns down Rockets’ extension
Says no to $103 million offer in hopes of joining Nets
James Harden must really want to come to Brooklyn.
But then again, who wouldn’t?
The former NBA Most Valuable Player turned down the opportunity to be the highest paid player in league history just so he can be a Net.
Harden, who appears very eager to get out of Houston, where he has starred for the past eight years, said no Tuesday to a reported $103 million, two-year extension from the Rockets that would have made him the first player ever to receive upwards of $50 million per season.
