‘He got traded, he’s healthy now’: Simmons-Harden trade makes for some awkward scenes during NBA All Star draft

News Post || News Now:

The NBA trade deadline fell on the same day as the All Star draft, putting Kevin Durant in an awkward spot.

Durant and LeBron James went on US national television to pick their 12-man All Star squads one player at a time, but Durant was the only one with a teammate (well, now a former teammate) on the board.

After 21 picks, just two names remained — defensive centre Rudy Gobert, and 2018 MVP and three-time scoring champion James Harden.

But a disgruntled Harden had that morning been traded from Durant’s Brooklyn Nets to the Philadelphia 76ers for Ben Simmons. As Durant started his deliberations for his final selection everyone knew where it was going.
