Rockets Close To Landing Carmelo Anthony After Completing Harden's New Deal

James Harden was second in NBA Most Valuable Player voting for the second time in three seasons

Harden signed a four-year, $117 million extension with the Rockets last summer. Old CBA rules stated that players couldn't sign contract extensions in consecutive seasons.

Oklahoma City's Russell Westbrook (0) shoots over Houston's James Harden (13) during Game 3 in the first round of the NBA basketball playoffs between the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Houston Rockets at Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City, Friday, April 21, 2017. Houston was in the midst of a major transition, hiring new coach Mike D'Antoni, handing out big contracts to Eric Gordon and Ryan Anderson, and seeking to establish a new style that further emphasized Harden's unique combination of scoring and playmaking. Harden was named first team All-NBA which made him able to ink the record-breaking "supermax" extension.

If that good health continues, Harden should be in position to provide star-level contributions for the entirety of this deal.

Harden, 27, is coming off his finest season. "Since his arrival in Houston, James has shown an incredible work ethic, the desire to win and passion to be the best that has made it one of the stars of the most extraordinary and the most talented in the history of the National Basketball Association". An extension would kick in for 2019-20, and the exact amount of a max extension won't be known until that season's cap is determined. The new deal is set to pay Curry $201 million over five years. This deal was one of the best in the history of the rockets, which received one of the greatest basketball players of our time. Morey also signed forward P.J. Tucker and brought back center Nene.

Harden is fresh off by far the best season of his career and one of the best seasons ever by a player, as he averaged 29.1 points, 11.2 assists and 8.1 rebounds per game.

Alexander and Rockets general manager Daryl Morey strengthened the team this offseason when they traded for All-Star point guard Chris Paul.
