James Harden just snatched up a ridiculous huge bag. The Houston Rockers superstar just signed the biggest NBA contract extension, ever.
The Beard has inked a $228 million dollar deal with his squad.
James Harden and the Houston Rockets have agreed to a four-year extension, the team announced Saturday. The contract is a supermaximum extension that will guarantee him $228 million through the 2022-23 season, league sources told ESPN.
Harden, the runner-up to Russell Westbrook for the NBA’s MVP this season, has two years and $59 million left on his current contract. The four-year extension carries a value of $170 million and is the richest extension in NBA history.
But the Rockets aren’t done. Word is they have their sights on Melo.
The Rockets have fast-tracked the Harden extension with the arrival of All-Star guard Chris Paul and are turning full attention to completing a deal with the New York Knicks to acquire eight-time All-Star forward Carmelo Anthony in a trade, league sources said.
This is where we get petty and point out that James Harden has never won an NBA championship. Also, didn’t Melo run current Rockets head coach Mike D’Antoni when he was the Knicks coach?
That is all.
