Houston inked Harden, a five-time All-Star guard and the 2017 MVP runner-up, to a four-year extension worth $170 million under the NBA's new "Supermax provision".
The Houston Rockets made a big splash in the National Basketball Association offseason on Saturday on someone who isn't even a free agent.
For the second time in three seasons, Harden was second in MVP voting despite getting career highs in points, rebounds and assists for a second consecutive season. Old CBA rules stated that players couldn't sign contract extensions in consecutive seasons.
He added that Harden's "incredible work ethic, desire to win, and passion to be the best" make him "the ideal leader in our pursuit of another championship". He is coming off his best season yet.
The Rockets in 2012 placed great faith in Harden, after the trade, they hoped that the Thunder's sixth man would blossom, and he did, becoming the face of the Rockets franchise. He became the only player in National Basketball Association history to get at least 2,000 points, 900 assists and 600 rebounds in the same season. Morey also signed forward P.J. Tucker and brought back center Nene.
