The Nets now have the best big three in the game: Harden, Kevin Durant, and Kyrie Irving. That’s not enough.
Nets GM Sean Marks said Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving are committed to making the team's new Big Three jell on the court.
As the Nets were closing in on the deal for James Harden, general manager Sean Marks wanted to know if his two superstars really wanted to share the stage - not to mention the ball - with a third. Marks said Thursday that both Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving told him what he needed to hear, so he pulled the trigger on the blockbuster deal that landed the NBA's three-time scoring champion in Brooklyn. The Nets acquired Harden from Houston in a multiteam deal that became official Thursday, paying a huge price by sending Caris LeVert and Rodions Kurucs to Houston, along with 2022, 2024 and 2026 first-round picks and the right to swap first-round picks in 2021, 2023, 2025 and 2027.
Harden will reunite with Kevin Durant in Brooklyn
Kevin Durant, Jeff Green and DeAndre Jordan can only say so much about James Harden joining the Nets at this point.
