Default DAL, HOU, and PHX to pursue James Harden in free agency

http://basketball.realgm.com/wiretap...#ixzz29ZgucihB

According to that brief article, Harden has til the 31st of this month to sign an extension with OKC.

So basketball fans, what team do you see Harden suiting up for next season?

I'd love him on Phoenix. They have a good young core to develop. OKC will just not pay too much for him.

Harden has also said he'd like to play in PHX. He played his college ball in AZ, and I believe his mom has a house out there as well. And if PHX was willing to drop the max for Eric Gordon, it wouldnt be farfetched to think they'd offer Harden something close to that, if not the same offer.

If he was smart he would go to Dallas. Cuban has shown that he will spend money to put a good team on the floor.

Houston could work out depending on Morey. Jury is still out on him though.

I would love to see him in Philly but I am not familar with their cap situation.

Title should be "DAL, HOU, and PHX trying to create locker room and chemistry issues for OKC."

Hopefully Houston loses out or chooses to go after another free agent.

Dallas would be a terrible move for him.

Dirk has only 1-3 more seasons left, and if he comes out looking the way he did to start last season the end could be sooner than later.

Not to mention OJ Mayo will cost 1/2 the price and he isn't that much of a downgrade to Harden.

Does losing Harden for OKC make the Lakers the favorite now in the west?

I like him going to Houston. but Jeremy Lamb's development this year will make HOU think twice about that offer.
