Rumors have been swirling of a James Harden trade to the Miami Heat, hence the #HardentoMiami hashtag trending Tuesday afternoon.
The rumors were especially swirling after the Heat’s top target, Giannis Antetokounmpo, signed a maximum contract extension with his current team, the Milwaukee Bucks.
Miami is one of Harden’s preferred trade destinations.
Without Harden on the roster, Miami is listed at 18-1 odds.
In the Rockets’ first game in the Orlando bubble, delayed due to COVID-19, Harden became the second highest scorer in franchise history after a 49 point, 9 rebound, 8 assist, 3 steal, 3 block, and 1 turnover performance that featured 70% shooting from the field.
