But McMahon now said: the attitude I get from inside the Rockets is that their goal and hope is no longer to save their relationship with harden, they have found that harden is determined to leave here.
And what the management means is that they understand harden, and its not that theres nothing like that in the NBA, but its not that he can go where he wants to go.
McMahon said that it is no secret that harden played a big role in the deal for WES by the Rockets last year, but now, although he has an ideal destination, the Rockets may not be willing to satisfy him as much as last year.
I think what the Rockets are doing now is preparing for the reconstruction of Hadden after he leaves, he said. Its not fixed yet, but I feel like its accelerating faster than I thought. What the Rockets want is a young core who can rebuild the cornerstone and a series of draft rights, which is the minimum. Do you think there is such a person in the nets?
