The Nets will move Caris LeVert , Rodions Kurucs , four first-round picks, and four pick swaps to Houston, with Jarrett Allen and Taurean Prince going to the Cleveland Cavaliers , according to Wojnarowski. Dante Exum will move from the Cavs to the Rockets.

The Rockets are trading LeVert to the Indiana Pacers for Victor Oladipo . Houston will also reportedly send Indiana a 2023 second-round pick, according to Wojnarowski .

Houston will reportedly receive the Nets three unprotected first-round draft picks in 2022, 2024, and 2026, plus pick swaps in 2021, 2023, 2025, and 2027. Houston will also get Cleveland s 2022 first-round pick, via the Milwaukee Bucks.

The Nets will acquire a second-round pick in 2024 from the Cavs, according to Wojnarowski .

The blockbuster deal ends Harden s nine-year tenure in Houston and reunites him with Kevin Durant , alongside whom he started his NBA career with the Oklahoma City Thunder in 2009.

The trade came less than 12 hours after Harden publicly voiced his dissatisfaction with the Rockets, saying the team was "something that I don t think can be fixed."

Houston s reported haul for the former MVP and three-time scoring champ is substantial, with the draft picks and the expiring contract of Oladipo coming their way.
