James Harden has been ghosting the Houston Rockets for two weeks and is upset with the organization, per former NBA center Kendrick Perkins.

Harden and Russell Westbrook have each expressed concerns about the future of the Rockets, who have undergone quite a few changes since the team was knocked out of the 2020 playoffs by the Los Angeles Lakers in five games.

Head coach Mike D'Antoni opted not to sign a new contract and general manager Daryl Morey stepped down from his post. D'Antoni is now with the Brooklyn Nets as an assistant coach on Steve Nash's staff, while Morey is running the show on the Philadelphia 76ers.

Kendrick Perkins, who had a close relationship with both James Harden and Russell Westbrook during their time together on the Oklahoma City Thunder, also added that the two former MVPs wanted Tyronn Lue to be the new head coach. Lue wound up taking the Los Angeles Clippers job after Doc Rivers was fired. Houston hired Stephen Silas as D'Antoni's replacement.

The Rockets did consult Harden and Westbrook during their coaching search. Although neither superstar has requested a trade, that scenario could become a plausible eventual possibility, per ESPN.

Harden, who has led the NBA in scoring the last three seasons, is owed $131.5 million over the three seasons remaining on his contract with the Rockets, which includes a $46.9 million player option for the 2022-23 season.

Westbrook, meanwhile, is also owed $131.5 million over the next three seasons from Houston.

It's going to be fascinating to see what happens with Harden and Westbrook moving forward. The Rockets are certainly hoping that Harden stays on the team since he's arguably the best scorer in the NBA. Houston may not mind moving on from Westbrook since his lack of a perimeter game makes him a poor fit next to Harden.
