James Harden Got Paid Bank In Most Recent Contract Extension

James Harden has just committed to the largest NBA contract in the history of the league. The Houston Rockets guard has just signed a four year contract that goes up until the 2022-2023 season.

Harden will now be making $228 million over the next four seasons with the Rockets. This contract is a step up from the Steph Curry’s $201 million deal, which was previously the biggest deal in the NBA.

Previously, Harden signed a $117 million deal with an opt-out for the 2019/2020 season. Since last summer when he made this deal, he has added on $111 million. Basically, the Rockets star will be making $570,732 per game just by stepping foot on a court. Life must be nice for the beard.

The contract extension comes a few weeks after the signing of Chris Paul to the Rockets. Now, the Rockets are trying to stack their lineup and are talking about ensuring a trade for Carmelo Anthony.

Harden averaged 29.7 points and 11.2 assists and led the Rockets to be named the third seed in the Western Conference last season. He was also a major talk of being named MVP of the league, but was beat out by competitor Russell Westbrook. As they say, fear the beard!
