The James Harden era in Houston is over.

The Rockets superstar has been traded to the Brooklyn Nets as part of what has expanded into a massive 4-team blockbuster deal Wednesday.

ESPN’s Ramona Shelbourne and Adrian Wojnarowski broke the development.

Initially, the Nets received Harden, allowing him to reunite with their own superstar Kevin Durant.

He will also join forces with Kyrie Irving to make a formidable big 3, although Irving has not showed up in Brooklyn’s recent games.

In return, the Nets gave up Rodions Kurucs, Caris LeVert, 4 future first-rounders, as well as 4 pick swaps.

The Cleveland Cavaliers got involved in the deal, sending Dante Exum to the Rockets.

The Cavs then received Taurean Prince and Jarrett Allen from the Nets.

Later on, the Rockets dealt LeVert to the Indiana Pacers, trading for all-star Victor Oladipo. The Pacers also received a future pick.

The full breakdown could be seen above in a tweet by The Athletic’s Shams Charania.

With the trade, the Rockets now have a core of Oladipo, John Wall, and DeMarcus Cousins.
