I gotta admit, I hadn't seen this endgame coming. I thought if the Oklahoma City Thunder couldn't agree to a below-market extension with James Harden, they'd do one of three things: (1) They'd re-sign him for the max after the season and amnesty Kendrick Perkins; or (2) they'd re-sign him for the max after the season and trade Russell Westbrook; or (3) they'd sign and trade him after the season.
