The Brooklyn Nets acquired former NBA MVP James Harden from the Houston Rockets via trade on Wednesday, multiple outlets report. Harden has been seeking a way out of Houston for months now, and a deal has finally come to fruition a few weeks into the season. He'll now suit up alongside fellow superstars, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant (whom he played with for years for the Oklahoma City Thunder), in what will certainly be one of the league's most talented lineups. The trade was a complex, four-team affair that saw the Nets move a variety of draft picks and players, including Caris LaVert, one of their key players. He initially went to Houston, but was then quickly dealt to the Indiana Pacers in exchange for Victor Oladipo.
