James Harden, Houston Rockets Agree To $228M Contract Extension
James Harden has officially secured the bag!
The Houston Rockets baller has agreed to a staggering $228 million 4-year contract extension through the 2022-2023 season.
Harden’s super-max deal bumps Stephen Curry‘s $201M deal to become the biggest contract extension in NBA history.
With the megadeal, Harden is taking advantage of brand-new CBA rules that enable contract extensions for superstars. He became eligible to add four years to his deal after making the All-NBA team in May, and the Rockets became focused on locking him into an extension after their season ended.
“Houston is home for me,” Harden said in a statement released by the Rockets. “[Owner Leslie Alexander] has shown he is fully committed to winning, and my teammates and I are going to keep putting in the work to get better and compete for the title.”
