Various NBA players took to Twitter to describe their take on the James Harden trade after it was announced Saturday night.
The NBA world was awestruck by the late Saturday night moves of Sam Presti, general manager of the Oklahoma City Thunder. That's because Presti finally pulled the trigger on the oft-rumored deal that sent James Harden away from the Thunder. Harden lands with the Houston Rockets, sending back Kevin Martin and several future assets in return.
