We tried trading him to Warriors for Klay Thompson I believe. They declined.
People forget that Harden wasn't some big star in OKC. He was a 6th man coming in and dominating 2nd units, often in garbage time. Plus him shitting the bed in the Finals didn't help his trade value either.
Had we kept him till the ASB shit would have hit the fan and his value would have lowered even more plus our chemistry would have went to shit for trading him midseason for shitty compensation
