NBA trade rumor season is in full swing and it didn’t take long for NBA fans to lose their minds.

On Monday night ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski released a bombshell report claiming James Harden had turned down a $50 million extension from the Houston Rockets and instructed them to trade him to the Brooklyn Nets.


After turning down the chance to become the first $50 million a year player in league history, Houston Rockets guard All-NBA guard James Harden has made it clear to ownership that he’s singularly focused on a trade to the Brooklyn Nets, sources tell ESPN.

As Harden’s conversations with the Nets stars Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving ramped up in recent weeks on the West Coast, sources say the Rockets made a pitch for him to sign the maximum allowable extension — two years and $103 million on top of the remaining three years, $133 million on his current deal.

Harden immediately posted a video of himself unscrewing a water bottle cap amid all the trade rumors.

NBA fans immediately debated whether Harden was trying to say cap (the reports are lying) or no cap (there is truth to the reports).
