The big hold up with the Harden contract. OKC already have Durant and Westbrook locked up. From what I read a team can only have 2 players on those 5 year deals. So OKC max deal could only have been 4 years. Add into the cap hit OKC would have lost all flexibilty.

And Im not even sure Harden really wated to stay there. Most players are not happy playing the 6th man role for the entierty of a cereer. I would in his position want a chance to prove myself as a starter. And maybe he was tired of Westbrooks gunning.
