If James Harden thought that the heat was on after his collapse against the San Antonio Spurs, just wait until the public and Rockets fans get a whiff of this new deal.

According to Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle, the Rockets are set to offer another contract extension—this one totaling four years, $168 million. In big-number terms, that churns out at about $42 million per season.
The Rockets “plan to extend James Harden at the first opportunity,” the individual said. “That is the plan.”

Harden was the lone unanimous All-NBA first-team player, making him eligible for a full contract extension that would be worth as much as $168 million over four years. That is in addition to the $58.7 million he is due to make in the next two seasons.
The extension would give Harden a starting salary of $37.5 million in the 2019-20 season.
