It became known why harden does not come to the location of “Houston” in Orlando
Houston Rockets quarterback James harden did not arrive at the team’s location in Orlando to participate in the restart of the NBA season, because he wants to do it at the same time as teammate point guard Russell Westbrook, reports the Stadium in “Twitter” with reference to insider Shams Charania.
Westbrook had contracted the coronavirus. There were rumors that harden was also infected, but the player was training independently in Houston and waiting for Westbrook to be given permission to go to Orlando. Rockets head coach Mike D’antoni is counting on the arrival of Westbrook, Harden and recently signed Luke Mbah a moute to the team’s location in the middle of next week.
This season, harden had 34.4 points, 6.4 rebounds and 7.4 assists. Westbrook averaged 27.5 points, 8.0 rebounds and 7.0 assists. Westbrook and harden are spending their first season together with the rockets, but they were teammates with the Oklahoma city thunder before that.
At the time of the suspension of the season due to the coronavirus pandemic, Houston was ranked fifth in the NBA Western conference standings. The regular season will resume on July 30 at Disneyworld amusement Park in Orlando, Florida.
The Lakers have outlined a priority transfer goal to strengthen the backline
The national basketball Association’s Los Angeles Lakers team may try to get Milwaukee Bucks player Eric Bledsoe, according to Marca. According to the source, “serniki” can exchange for Bledsoe, Danny green and Alex Caruso.
The 30-year-old Bledsoe is not happy with his role at the Bucks, and throughout the season his name was heard in a string of rumors about a possible exchange before the transfer market closed in February.

The 34-year-old Rondo was injured during Sunday’s Lakers practice in Orlando, where the 2019/2020 season will be restarted. Initially, it was reported that the damage is serious. The survey confirmed the fears. Surgery on Rondo’s finger is scheduled for this week. Rondo will miss the remaining games of the NBA regular season and will only be able to return to the court at the beginning of the playoffs.
