Bradley Beal, Donovan Mitchell and other NBA stars react to James Harden-to-Nets blockbuster trade

NBA, Nets, James Harden, Nets

The NBA trade rumors involving  James Harden can finally come to a close, as the Houston Rockets guard is heading to the Brooklyn Nets in a four-team deal. The Cleveland Cavaliers received Jarrett Allen and Taurean Prince from Brooklyn, while Victor Oladipo was traded to Houston for Caris LeVert who is now on the Indiana Pacers, according to ESPN.

This news took the league by storm as players such as Bradley Beal, Donovan Mitchell, CJ McCollum, Paul Pierce and Jared Dudley all reacted to the trade:

Those who thought the idea of LeBron James and Anthony Davis playing for the Lakers–as well as Kawhi Leonard and Paul George pairing up–was jaw-dropping are in for a surprise. The mere thought of Harden on a team with NBAsuperstars such as Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving brings the term “super team” to an entirely different level. These players have not even played a game together and players on other teams are already picturing the offensive talent they will have to go up against.

Here is what Andre Drummond, Jusuf Nurkic and Rudy Gay had to say on what went down:

These three players on a team have the potential to wreak havoc on almost every team in the NBA. Kevin Durant and James Harden have proven time and time again that they’re offensive play-making abilities are unguardable, having career averages of 27.0 and 25.2 points a game, respectively. Along with Kyrie Irving’s court vision and ability to finish in the paint, the Nets will be the favorite to go all the way.

However, before anyone can think about the Nets winning a championship, team chemistry must be built between these superstars in order for them to play cohesively. They must take each game one at a time and gradually establish themselves as the team to beat in the NBA.
