The third time was the charm for the Houston Rockets. Unable to swing trades with the Lakers for Pau Gasol or the Magic for Dwight Howard, they landed a blockbuster on Saturday, obtaining James Harden from the Rockets in a six-player deal in which they sent Kevin Martin to Oklahoma City. Reaction poured in from NBA players on Twitter.
