Harden signs extension, giving him richest National Basketball Association deal ever
Jul 10, 2017, 00:30
Harden averaged 29.1 points and led the National Basketball Association with 11.2 assists last season. "I and my teammates will continue to work to become better and to fight for the title", - quotes the words of Harden official website of "Houston". With a provision in the new collective bargaining agreement, Harden became eligible for the DPVE, worth for him an additional $169 million over four seasons. Not that that will matter much when they also scored 115.3 points per contest, a mark that trailed only the Golden State Warriors, and that was without Anthony and Paul. According to ESPN's Bobby Marks, the deal could be among the biggest extensions in National Basketball Association history. He reportedly agreed to the biggest contract in National Basketball Association history - a four-year $228 million extension through the 2022- 23 season. Earlier reports from NY stated that the Knicks are open to trading the All-Star in a deal that will benefit both sides. The Houston Rockers superstar just signed the biggest National Basketball Association contract extension, ever. Harden has two years and $59 million left on his current contract.
By committing to Harden again this summer, Houston has made clear its identity going forward through his prime - the Rockets are Harden's team - and posted an "Open for business" sign to all free agents or less-than-satisfied stars who are interested in investigating their Superteam opportunities. The Rockets finished the season as the NBA's biggest overachievers relative to preseason expectations, ranked second in offensive efficiency behind the Warriors, and set an National Basketball Association record for three-point attempts. Harden won't have to carry all the load this season, which helps preserve him for the future and should raise his efficiency, as he plays off the ball more and lets Paul create good looks for him.
The Knicks' acquisition of Hardaway Jr., to the staggering deal is expected to trigger a renewed willingness to work with the Houston Rockets on trade scenarios to unload Carmelo Anthony, league sources told ESPN. An extension would kick in for 2019-20, and the exact amount of a max extension won't be known until that season's cap is determined.
