According to a few reports, the Miami Heat are no longer involved in talking with the Houston Rockets about a deal involving James Harden.

Obviously, this source hit the marks, informing Anthony Chiang, Ira Winderman, and Tim Reynolds all with the same information.

The Heat seemed to be focused on the group just days before the NBA season begins for them on Wednesday in Orlando.

James Harden wants out of Houston, that is clear — but the asking price for him, at least for now, seemed to be too high for the Miami Heat. Miami Has plenty of young and hopeful talent that they believe will be a contender this year along with their veterans who led them to the NBA Finals last year.

Just because it is no longer a talking point now, doesn’t mean they won’t revisit it. The question will become how quickly do the Rockets want him gone and are the willing to come down from their steep price.

Stay tuned.

What do you think? Is this the right move for the Heat, to back off and focus on their group?
