James Harden posts Instagram picture saying he is traded to New Orleans Hornets


James Harden made every Thunder fan’s heart jump today after he posted a very interesting picture on Instagram.

Harden posted the picture below earlier today and then later deleted it. Credit to Royce Young of Daily Thunder for getting the image before it was deleted.

This would be a huge deal if Harden was traded and it would be completely out of nowhere. There has been no speculation this offseason at all of Harden being traded unless you count the rumors around the time of the NBA Draft with Harden possibly being shopped for the No. 2 overall pick.

The most likely cause for this is that Harden’s account was hacked. Not actually hacked but just someone getting his password and posting the pic.

The other interesting thing about this picture is what exactly it is of. It’s not like he typed this on a computer and then took a picture of it. It looks more like an old parchment or something. Not really sure what to make of it.

Harden has been with Team USA these past few days preparing for the Olympics. In the coming days, we may know more about what exactly this was all about but for now, we can all at least be sure that Harden has not been traded.

    I hope he does get traded to the Big Easy. He is a baller.
