    It sounds like few tears are being shed in the Houston Rockets locker room about the James Harden trade.
    The Rockets on Wednesday sent the star guard - who quite clearly didn't want to be in Houston any longer - to the Brooklyn Nets in a deal that shook the NBA .
    Harden's trade came after he publicly said following a loss to the Los Angeles Lakers that the situation was unfixable - something that drew the ire of DeMarcus Cousins.
    And according to The Ringer's Kevin O'Connor , Cousins and John Wall were the two Rockets “most disgruntled” with Harden.

    1 day ago - By Hoops Rumors

    Needing an open roster spot to complete the James Harden trade , the Rockets elected to waive Bruno Caboclo , tweets Shams Charania of The Athletic.
