James Harden's public standoff in Houston appears to be over.

According to reports, Harden will finally part ways with the Rockets after being traded to NBA contenders the Brooklyn Nets to join Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant.

But this wasn't just a simple trade between two Championship-hungry NBA franchises, this deal actually included two other teams in need of some roster shuffling themselves.

It turns out the Cleveland Cavaliers and Indiana Pacers also got in on the action too.

But before we get into the nitty gritty of the four-way trade itself, can we just acknowledge the fact that the Nets now currently boast the greatest trio on paper in the league.

They might not be MJ, Pippen and The Worm or even LeBron, D-Wade and Bosh, but it this new triumvirate of Kyrie, KD and The Beard is mouth-watering to say the least.

Now, without further ado, let's get into the details of the wild trade.

The Athletic's Shams Charania first broke the huge news, reporting that the Rockets were sending Harden to Brooklyn in exchange for four first-round picks and four draft swaps.

The Nets would then move both Caris LeVert and Jarrett Allen on, but neither would be heading off on a plane to H-Town.

Instead, the Indian Pacers entered the pictured and were willing to move Victor Oladipo onto the Rockets in exchange for Caris LeVert and a second-rounder while the Cavaliers managed to bag Jarrett Allen.

Aussie Dante Exum was also thrown into the mix from the Cavs, eventually ending up in Texas with Rodions Kurucs and Oladipo.
