James Harden agrees to record-setting extension with Rockets

James Harden agrees to record-setting extension with Rockets

He joined the Houston Rockets as a free agent in 2012 and became one of the best players in the National Basketball Association. "Mr. Alexander has shown he is fully committed to winning".

As a reward, the Rockets are reportedly prepared to offer Harden a massive extension that would be the richest in National Basketball Association history. Harden and Oscar Robertson are only players in National Basketball Association history who have averaged 29.0 points, 11.0 assists and 8.0 rebounds in one season.

James Harden would be the first player to sign under the new Designated Player Veteran Extension (DPVE).

Harden has agreed to sign a four-year agreement with a value of 169.2 million $, which should allow him to reach in average a salary of $ 42.3 million, depending on the network ESPN.

The contract extension Alexander and the Rockets gave Harden trumped Golden State point guard Stephen Curry's five-year $201 million deal.

Worldpay Group plc is a United Kingdom-based company, which provides a range of technology-led payment products and services. Vantiv Chief Financial Officer Stephanies Ferris would take up the CFO role in the merged firm.

He added that Harden's "incredible work ethic, desire to win, and passion to be the best" make him "the flawless leader in our pursuit of another championship". The extension comes about two weeks after the Rockets traded for Chris Paul, who has one year left on his deal.

"Houston is home for me". With Howard gone, the Rockets put Harden at the center of everything they do on offense, and it paid off.

It was announced on Saturday by ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski that the #Toronto Raptors traded DeMarre Carroll to the Brooklyn Nets. As a point of comparison, LeBron James was in his age-27 season during his second year in Miami. I understand why Harden wanted the contract extension, but if it does not help keep the team together that could potentially make a deep playoff run, it could hurt him more than benefit him. With Harden's move to point guard last season, Paul's role will probably be a bit different than it has been in Los Angeles.

During the 2016-17 National Basketball Association season, Harden recorded 2,356 points, 907 assists, and 659 rebounds.

Harden joined Golden State's Stephen Curry this summer as the only $200 million dollar men in the National Basketball Association.
