2009: Selected by Oklahoma City in 1st round (3rd overall) of the NBA Draft...2010: NBA All-Rookie Second Team...2012: NBA Sixth Man of the Year; Gold Medallist with United States at Summer Olympics in London; Traded to Houston in a six-player deal, Oct. 27th; Signed with Houston to a five-year contract extension worth $78.8 million, Nov. 1st...2013: NBA All-Star; All NBA Third Team...2014: NBA All-Star; All-NBA First Team...2015: NBA All-Star.

One of the truly elite players in college basketball during the two seasons he spent at Arizona State...After scoring 17.8 ppg as a freshman, Harden recorded 20.1 ppg, 5.6 rpg and 4.2 apg as a sophomore, proof of his tremendous all-around ability...Shoots at a very high percentage from the floor for a guard...Is ready to help an NBA team right away...Has proven capable of completely dominating a game at the offensive end...Has the type of body that NBA scouts desire, more than capable of handling the rigors of the pro game...Has a developed jumper and can score off the dribble as well...Is capable of scoring on post-up moves...Needs to cut down on the turnovers and isn`t an elite athlete, but Harden still has star potential.
