Dallas won't because Harden wants a huge payday. Dallas is semi rebuilding getting all these decent players for CHEAP -- they want to keep their cap space for a huge player. Harden was like 3rd option (he won't be a good 1 or 2 option unless you have nothing but scrubs) and not worth it. He would be a great player as 6th man coming off the bench. They obviously aren't going to spend that money (or commit to many years) because they could have easily made an offer to keep Jason Terry.

Nice to see owners have learned their lesson from the lockout

What will happen:

1. Harden signs max offer sheet with someone.
2. OKC matches.
3. OKC trades him after a year to save money.

I'd totally be in favour of the Raptors throwing a max deal at him the second he reaches free agency. There will be better teams in more desirable locations doing the same thing though.

I kinda hope OKC don't give him max otherwise trade him then amnesty perk next year and go for a defensive/rebounding centre..

I can't believe it took this long for this to be mentioned.

OKC will match the 4-year max contract that any under-cap team can and will offer next year as he's an unrestricted free agent. Also, since its restricted free agency, once someone signs him to an offer sheet, a sign-and-trade is no longer an option.

Harden's destination going into the 2013/14 or 20014/15 season will depend less on teams with max cap room, and more on who puts together the most attractive package for the Thunder.
