James Harden’s new restaurant Thirteen Houston in Midtown was open for a select few in the public Tuesday night…
Members of the news media were given a sneak peek at the new high end dining facility located at 1911 Bagby in mid-town Houston.
We were also introduced to Tobias Dorzon. He’s is a former NFL player who transitioned into a professional cook. Dorson will serve as head chef at Thirteen.
We’re told the grand opening is set for March 2nd and Harden is expected to be there even though he no longer calls Houston and the Rockets home.
James Harden is heading to Brooklyn, joining old teammate Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving to give the Nets a potent trio of the some of the NBA’s highest scorers.
The Nets acquired the three-time scoring champion from the Houston Rockets on Wednesday in a move he has sought for weeks. The trade also involves the Cleveland Cavaliers.
In the trade, the Nets send center Jarrett Allen and forward Taurean Prince to Cleveland, and guard Caris LeVert and forward Rodions Kurucs, as well as three first round draft picks (2022, 2024 and 2026) and four first round pick swaps (2021, 2023, 2025 and 2027) to Houston.
The Rockets also receive guard Dante Exum and a 2022 first round draft pick from Cleveland (via Milwaukee), and Brooklyn acquires a 2024 second round draft pick from the Cavaliers to complete the deal.
The deal will reportedly include a fourth team, the Indiana Pacers, but that aspect of the deal has not been made official yet. Per multiple reports, the Pacers would acquire LeVert and a future second-round pick from the Rockets in exchange for All-Star guard Victor Oladipo.
