He was restricted though man. Oklahoma City could've matched any offer for Harden. They made a crappy extension offer though. I cannot believe they thought a four year/52 million dollar extension was going to make Harden satisfied. He wanted max money and rightfully so. When you have average players like Brook Lopez and Roy Hibbert getting near max money a guy like Harden definitely deserves in.
