Package 4

The Golden State Warriors understand it will take a massive package simply to get James Harden. Yet, they could still push the Houston Rockets to include a bit more than just Harden.

P.J. Tucker is one of the league’s best 3-and-D players. He won’t be a full replacement for Draymond Green, but he certainly does better than most. Swapping Green for Tucker is something the Warriors could live with if it means adding Harden to the roster.

Obviously, it would take more than that to get the deal done. The Rockets would ask for another prospect like Andrew Wiggins and a pair of picks to capitalize on the rebuild. As we’ve said, losing those picks won’t mean much when the Warriors are battling for championships over the next few years.

Harden and Tucker fill in roles perfectly with the Warriors. As long as Harden is willing to adapt to the Dubs’ selfless system, this is a dynasty in the making.
