James Harden appears to be done with the Houston Rockets. It's, basically and officially, James Harden trade season.

After a 17-point loss to the Los Angeles Lakers Harden said, “I love this city. I literally have done everything that I can. I mean, this situation is crazy. It’s something that I don’t think can be fixed.” Coming into the season, some fans thought that there was a chance the relationship between Harden and the Rockets could be salvaged, but now that seems unlikely.

After all, the most recent reports have the Rockets actively shopping James Harden to the Sixers and the Nets.

On the daily Locked On Rockets Podcast, host Jackson Gatlin reacts to the guard's comments.

Jackson Gatlin: He wants out, he has made that abundantly clear. He's given up on this roster, unfortunately. And now it's all about refill stone, and the ownership finding an appropriate trade package to make sure that this organization is set up for the foreseeable future…

A James Harden trade isn't the end of the world, and I feel like that's very important. A bad James Harden trade is the end of the world. This trade can either make or break this organization for the better part of the next decade. If they play their cards right this organization can be set up for success within the next two to three years. If they don't play their cards, right, if they trade James Harden and they get back a poopoo platter something along the lines of what the Nets offer originally was, then this organization is going to be stuck in quite murky territory for the foreseeable future. They'll be stuck due to a lack of future draft assets, courtesy of James Harden and forcing the Russell Westbrook trade, as well as a variety of other factors. So it's important to find the right suitor for James Harden to make this thing happen.
