HOUSTON – The Rockets are on the clock and James Harden’s time in Houston will be ending once a trade partner is solidified.
NBA sources tell me that the Rockets coaches and players have had it with Harden and his attitude and are ready to move on. I’m told the organization as a whole fully supports that thinking.
