The James Harden saga for the Houston Rockets continues as training camp begins for the team. Harden was travelling the week prior and was seen in Atlanta only a couple days before camp was due to open. Because of this travel, he was unable to attend the opening of training camp.
Well, there’s more.
Harden was spotted in Las Vegas last night after he was supposed to be home isolating, getting ready to re-join his teammates for training camp.
James Harden was reportedly spotted in Vegas last night w/ the Rockets expecting him at camp.
His mother responded with a long message on the situation: "… He's asking for a chance to get a ring and that's it…"

From all accounts, he is not committed to the team and has made it known he wants to be traded. Instead of following protocols, he’s been busy at the Strip Clubs.
Stephen Silas: James Harden did not take participate in today's practice. Cannot practice with team due to COVID-19 protocols. The Rockets expect him to be in for an indvidual workout this evening.

Don’t expect to see Harden suited up for the Rockets anytime soon, while the trade gets facilitated.
