Would've left the Raptors barren but Harden is a 25/5/5 SG... maybe a future MVP contender... taking the superstar and figuring out the rest later is prob the best move
That worked out well with Bosh and Carter huh? Let's not forget that we would've needed to still sign him to an extension.

So, let's give up Val, Ross, Jose and they're likely be another asset dealt for Harden. If Harden doesn't resign here (I know he's restricted still....) what does that do for us? I like Harden a lot too, but he's quickly gone from underrated to way way overrated.
