The Houston Rockets' acquisition (via Yahoo!) of guard James Harden has given birth to a fierce debate over whether small-market NBA franchises (such as Oklahoma City) can compete with big-market franchises (like New York or Boston) in the long run.
Harden's refusal (via ProBasketballTalk) to accept anything less than a max contract extension ultimately paved the way for his trade to Houston, where he was greeted (via CBSSports) by a monster extension from Daryl Morey.
Harden's trade raises this question: Which other assets are most tradeable as we move forward with the 2012-13 season?
Here we will examine whether you should buy or sell the possibility of the following players being traded.
