Unable to work out an extension with James Harden, the Oklahoma City Thunder traded the Sixth Man of the Year to the Houston Rockets on Saturday night, breaking up the young core of the Western Conference champions. The Thunder acquired guards Kevin Martin and Jeremy Lamb, two first-round picks, and a second-round pick in the surprising deal. Oklahoma City also sent center Cole Aldrich and forwards Daequan Cook and Lazar Hayward to Houston.

OKLAHOMA CITY - The 76ers will be without Richaun Holmes longer than coach Brett Brown expected. "I believe it's going to be another eight to 10 days, which might mean four to six games," Brown said following Friday's shootaround for that night's matchup against the Oklahoma City Thunder at Chesapeake Energy Arena. Holmes strained his right hamstring while doing drills before Wednesday's home loss to the Toronto Raptors. The rookie reserve power forward was held out of game. He and small forward Robert Covington did not accompany the Sixers on their two-game road at OKC and San Antonio, Texas.

RUSSELL Westbrook had 27 points and nine assists, Kevin Durant added 25 points and the Oklahoma City Thunder blasted the weary Los Angeles Lakers, 119-90, on Monday night in the opening game of the Western Conference semifinals. The Thunder took a 15-point halftime lead, then opened the third quarter with a 15-2 blitz filled with homecrowd-pleasing three-pointers and dunks. Oklahoma City led by as many as 35 points, getting a measure of vengeance for the elbow Metta World Peace delivered to the head of the Thunder's James Harden 3 weeks earlier - and without needing dirty tactics to do it. Thunder starting center Kendrick Perkins limped off after aggravating a hip injury from the first round.

LAS VEGAS - Gerald Henderson called signing with the 76ers a dream come true - one that he'll never forget. That's partly because his father, Gerald Henderson Sr., played for the Sixers during the 1987-88 and 1988-89 seasons. The Sixers were also his favorite team growing in Blue Bell, a suburb of Philadelphia. "No other teams could offer the feelings I have towards the organization," said the former Episcopal Academy standout, who signed his two-year, $18 million contract here on Saturday.

Welcome to America's newest, most entertaining reality-TV show. It's called NBA Free Agency, and it doesn't need a Kardashian, a Real Housewife, or a deserted island (unless we're talking about Brooklyn and the Nets roster) to do boffo ratings and grab the viewing public by its lapels. There's so much action and excitement, and so much of the action is meaningless mind candy. Aside from Kevin Durant's leaving the Oklahoma City Thunder to sign with the Golden State Warriors, the thrill of seeing all these players changing teams and signing gonzo contracts has little to do with how those signings will affect the balance of power among the league's 30 teams.

OKLAHOMA CITY - The MVP didn't play anything like one. The Oklahoma City Thunder acted as if this series is theirs. And so the defending champion Warriors, the greatest team in NBA regular-season history, are one loss away from being dethroned after being crushed again in a 118-94 loss to the Thunder in Game 4 of the Western Conference finals Tuesday. Suffering back-to-back losses for the first time all season, the Warriors trail 3-1 in the series and face elimination as the Thunder can end their season with a win in Game 5 at Oracle Arena on Wednesday.

The 76ers are in the transition phase of their rebuilding. Transition was a word that came up a couple of times Sunday during Bryan Colangelo's introductory news conference as the team's president of basketball operations. "I just really want to make sure everybody understands that this is a transition from this measured rebuilding process to sustainable winning," Colangelo said, with Sixers co-managing owner Josh Harris at his side.

BILLY DONOVAN put in 21 years of coaching at the college ranks, two with Marshall, the rest at the University of Florida, where he won back-to-back national championships in 2006 and 2007. Still only 50, he decided to leave the SEC to head the Oklahoma City Thunder for a challenge that is probably a little bit bigger, more lucrative but certainly not as stable, even though he took over a team that includes two of the best players in the game in Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook.

Resting Serge Ibaka wasn't nearly enough. The Oklahoma City Thunder would have had to sit Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant as well to make it a fair fight. Westbrook posted a triple-double and Durant had a double-double Friday night as the Thunder turned a mismatch on paper into just that on the Wells Fargo Center court, defeating the 76ers, 111-97. "It's as much as a disposition to me as it is a skill package," Sixers coach Brett Brown said of the duo. "There is a competitive anger that you see in their faces, a determination and a will that you can't put any stat on. And that sort of feeling and that sort of competitiveness trickles down to all of them.

Finally playing as if their chance at a playoff berth was on the line, which it is, the Wizards picked up their second consecutive lopsided victory over a team just ahead of them in the standings, beating Derrick Rose's Chicago Bulls, 117-96, behind John Wall's triple-double Wednesday night in Washington. Wall, an all-star point guard, produced 29 points, 12 assists and 10 rebounds, outplaying Rose, who returned after missing two games with a strained left groin and finished with 16 points and four assists.
