With head coach Mike D’Antoni and general manager Daryl Morey both leaving the Houston Rockets in the offseason, the Rockets are set to go through some changes. One of them is likely to be the departure of superstar James Harden, who has named two possible destinations.
The Athletic’s Shams Charania reported the names of those teams on Monday.
Houston is fully comfortable keeping Harden and Russell Westbrook into the season.

The Rockets have not announced sure plans to trade Harden, but his preferred destinations are the Brooklyn Nets and the Philadelphia 76ers.
If he joined Brooklyn he would be in the same lineup as Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant, creating a new superteam. The 76ers have roster questions of their own to sift through, but he could join Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons there.
Harden has expressed the desire to be on a contender next year, as the Rockets are slowly losing shape and possible entering a rebuild.
