Houston Rockets guard James Harden said Friday he’s got no issues with former teammate and current Atlanta Hawks center Dwight Howard, whom he’ll face Saturday night. Harden and Howard were teammates for three seasons with the Rockets until Howard declined to pick up his player option this summer. Howard signed a three-year, $70.5 million deal with Atlanta.
During a disappointing 41-41 2015-16 season, a source told ESPN the relationship between Howard and Harden was “cordially bad.” It’s something Harden disputes. “Yeah we’re cool,” Harden said.
