Rockets ‘plan’ to Extend James Harden this Summer

on

With an eye on potential roster moves this summer and well beyond, the Rockets “plan” to take a step that will allow them to tell potential free agents that star guard James Harden will not be going anywhere.

For the second-consecutive season, the Rockets intend to offer Harden a contract extension long before he could hit free agency, a person with knowledge of the team’s plans said on Tuesday. The individual spoke on the condition of anonymity because the team’s intentions have not been made public.

The Rockets “plan to extend James Harden at the first opportunity,” the individual said. “That is the plan.”
