James Harden includes the Milwaukee Bucks and the Miami Heat as additional teams he would like to be traded to, per The Athletic. The previously surfaced teams fitting in his plans were the Philadelphia 76ers and Brooklyn Nets.
Harden, 31, has been looking to move on via trade in his quest for an NBA championship and seems keen on jumping to the Eastern Conference. His first 11 seasons locked him into the Western Conference between the Oklahoma City Thunder and his current team, the Houston Rockets.
However, the math behind a potential trade to any of the mentioned East contenders remains complicated. Due to salary cap restrictions, both the Heat and the Bucks will likely have to give up key players to bring in Harden.
