James Harden has been traded to the Houston Rockets from the Oklahoma City Thunder as part of a blockbuster deal that will provide Jeremy Lin with a new running mate in the backcourt.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, the Rockets will receive Harden in exchange for Kevin Martin, Jeremy Lamb and future draft picks. Houston will also receive Cole Aldrich, Lazar Hayward and Daequan Cook.

This vastly changes the outlook of Oklahoma City's season, while the Rockets finally have someone to play alongside Lin. There is no doubt that Houston plans to make Harden its franchise star.

OKC just fell a peg or two from title contention with the loss of Harden, despite adding for the future in this trade.
