More details on this trade are coming quickly to light. Thanks to Mr. Wojnarowski

So, I think it is safe to assume that Martin and Harden will just slide into the role vacated by the other, but let's wait for the dust to settle, and for something to become official, before breaking this down too much.

Wojnarowski is a well-informed and respected NBA reporter. So there is every reason to believe this is legitimate, although that doesn't make it any easier to believe. 

The Thunder made it to the NBA Fianls last year, and Harden was a huge reason why. 

Last season, Harden had the impressive PER of 21.13 as he put up 16.8 points in 31.4 minutes per game, and all while bringing solid defense as well. 

Stay tuned to this juicy story as there are sure to be plenty of details coming available shortly.
