(Yahoo! Sports) The rumors that James Harden and Russell Westbrook want the Houston Rockets to trade them appear to be over their desire to win now. With a new GM and head coach, it could feel like they’re starting all over again, and that’s not what they signed up for.
That narrative makes sense, but it may not be the real reason. According to a new report, Harden, Westbrook and others are revolting against Rockets owner Tilman Fertitta’s political leanings.
