James Harden's stay in Houston won't be temporary. A few days after getting traded to the Rockets by the Thunder, the 2012 NBA Sixth Man of the Year has officially agreed to a five-year, $80 million contract extension with the team. He's expected to start alongside Jeremy Lin well into the foreseeable future and anchor a team that's hoping to regain relevance in the crowded Western Conference. Congrats on the big payday, James.
