The Houston Rockets have agreed to trade the All-Star guard James Harden to the Nets in a four-team deal, a day after a disgruntled Harden said the Rockets were “not good enough.”

The trade, which was first reported by ESPN, was confirmed by a person close to Harden with knowledge of the deal who was not authorized to discuss it publicly.

As part of the deal, the Nets will send Caris LeVert to the Indiana Pacers; the Pacers will send Victor Oladipo to the Houston Rockets; and the Nets will send Jarrett Allen to the Cleveland Cavaliers.

This is a developing story.
