AP: Oladipo traded to Houston, Harden sent to Brooklyn in four-team swap

Victor Oladipo

HOUSTON (AP) -- The Brooklyn Nets have agreed to acquire three-time scoring champion James Harden from the Houston Rockets in a deal that reunites him with Kevin Durant and gives him the move that he has sought for weeks.
A person familiar with the situation says Harden is going to the Nets as part of a four-team deal that also involves Indiana and Cleveland. The deal was struck less than 24 hours after Harden vented his frustration after the Rockets' second straight blowout loss to the Los Angeles Lakers Tuesday night.
At least four draft picks and additional pick swaps are also part of the deal, according to the person. Other key players: Victor Oladipo goes from Indiana to Houston, and Caris Levert goes from Brooklyn to Indiana, the person said, adding that Cleveland was also part of the massive trade.
The person spoke to The Associated Press Wednesday on condition of anonymity because the trade call with the NBA -- which signs off on all deals -- has not been completed.
