Harden Sought Trade Kicker In Extension Talks With Thunder
During extension talks with the Oklahoma City Thunder, James Harden and his agent sought a 15 percent trade kicker.
Harden was entertaining taking less than a max contract, but wanted a financial incentive should the Thunder trade him.
The Thunder were offering Harden a four-year contract in the neighborhood of $53 million.
With the Houston Rockets, Harden will be able to sign a five-year contract.
