My ESPN colleagues Adrian Wojnarowski, Ramona Shelburne and Zach Lowe reported Sunday that the Nets were "rising to the top" of Harden's list as he considered his future with the Houston Rockets, and Wojnarowski reported on Monday that Harden is singularly focused on Brooklyn as a destination.

Let's break down a potential trade from all angles.
