Tilman Fertitta Rumors

Belief among NBA executives that James Harden will rejoin the Rockets this summer

The belief among NBA executives is that James Harden will rejoin the Houston Rockets this summer. Rockets owner Tilman Fertitta “loves” the 76ers point guard. The franchise expects to reunite with him, sources say. Before hiring Ime Udoka on April 25, head coaching candidates were asked for their opinion on coaching Harden during the interview process, according to sources.
Fertitta, who described the previous three years as painful, may have gotten too excited when he accidentally revealed plans for the Rockets’ new practice facility. “We’re building a 70-million-dollar practice facility right now,” Fertitta said. “We were hoping it would be ready for next season, but just with permitting and everything — we’ll lay it all out for you guys soon. “It’s really exciting,” Fertitta said. “It’s going to be great. I think it’ll be a great tool to recruit players.”
