Report: Rockets will sign James Harden to $60 million extension

Jerry Lai-US PRESSWIRE

The Rockets are reportedly planning to sign James Harden to a 4-year, $60 million deal.

The greatest trick Daryl Morey ever pulled was convincing the world that he was out of tricks. Not so fast, my friends.

Morey is set to trade Kevin Martin (for whom I'm glad we got anything back), rookie Jeremy Lamb and two draft picks — belonging to Dallas and Toronto — for James Harden, Cole Aldrich, Daequan Cook and Lazar Hayward. I think Toronto's pick might have been worse than we thought, and Dallas may not finish in the top ten in the league this year. So with that in mind, I am so, so cool with this.

Even better — apparently, Harden and the Rockets are about to reach a deal.

Great deal, my friends. Is it enough for playoff contention? I'm not so sure. There will be a lot of growing pains, and this team is still incredibly young. I think Houston now finishes between 9-12 in the West.

On another note, I hope the Rockets cut Cole Aldrich as soon as possible. I really, really hate Kansas.
