“I was sitting in the draft room and my agent said that it was possible I might go to OKC,” said Beal. “I didn’t even work out for OKC, I only worked out for three teams. Washington, Cleveland and Charlotte.”

“OKC was going to trade up to two or three, get me, trade James to Washington for me. I would’ve been in OKC with KD and Russ,” said Beal.

“That was a last-minute decision,” said Beal. “It was almost done.”

It’s hard to imagine the Houston Rockets without James Harden, but it just goes to show how things can change on a dime in the NBA.
