Houston and Miami Discussing Blockbuster James Harden Trade

The Houston Rockets are working hard trying to ensure they receive back full value for trading James Harden, even though every executive in the league now knows he wants out of H-Town. 

From all accounts, it sounds like the Miami Heat are the heavy favorites and are willing to give up some interesting pieces in the deal.

Jackson goes on to mention there's mutual interest here and the Heat are willing to part with Tyler Herro in the deal. Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo aren't going anywhere, but the Heat appear to be willing to part with Herro, and potentially Duncan Robinson. The Heat would also need to include Andre Iguodala and Kelly Olynyk to make the money work. 

For Herro, he used the playoff bubble to burst onto the scene and was unstoppable at streaks throughout the playoffs. He finished his rookie season averaging 13.5 points per game and rose up to 16 points per game in the playoffs.

Still, he's no James Harden. 

If Houston is indeed interested in a package including Herro, expect Pat Riley to pull the trigger immediately.
