After news went public that James Harden wanted out of the Houston Rockets, the Golden State Warriors emerged as a potential landing spot for the former MVP winner. As it turns out, however, the Dubs have since moved on from the interest in Harden, and are now reportedly no longer interested in trading for the eight-time All-Star.

A report published by NBC Sports confirmed earlier rumors that the Warriors were actually looking at potentially bringing Harden to the Bay Area, but have, rather wisely, decided against taking on what could have been a disastrous situation:

In exploring avenues to get back into the thick of the championship chase, multiple league sources say the Warriors cast a wide hypothetical net that included James Harden. Though the vision of Harden moving into the Kevin Durant role was intriguing, the Warriors realized the return would be no better than a short-term gain while punching a hole in their future.

The report also states that the biggest issue of a Harden-to-Golden State trade would have been his fit — or lack thereof — with the current Warriors culture:

No, the bigger issue for the Warriors would have been trying to squeeze Harden, as comfortably entitled as any player in the league not named LeBron James, into a culture that demands accountability and schemes that require collaboration.

Harden is a bona fide superstar, and to say that he hasn't exactly gotten along with a second star would be warranted at this point. Dwight Howard, Chris Paul, and most recently Russell Westbrook all didn't work out in Houston, and while there are more than a few other factors involved in each of those unique situations, it's hard to overlook the fact that Harden has always been a common denominator.

One could only imagine how Harden and his ball-heavy ways would have fared playing alongside the likes of Stephen Curry and Draymond Green. And no, Harden is not Kevin Durant.
