The Houston Rockets' dressing room problems last season were no secret.

The franchise crashed from Western Conference finalists in 2015 to eighth-placed finishers this year as the relationship between James Harden and Dwight Howard continued to disintegrate.

Howard has now found a new franchise back in his home city of Atlanta while Harden has been handed an extension in H-Town to lead the organisation forward.

At a recent BodyArmor event, Harden took a thinly veiled dig at the big man as he spoke about how improved team chemistry is after the roster shake-up.

He said: "It's not even close. We've doing something I haven't since I've been here in Houston. Just trying to shake things up, just trying to make sure we really know each other in and out on and off the court. I think that will translate to a better team.

"On any team, in any sport, if you don't have the entire team on one page, the entire team having one goal, you're not going to be successful. That's what we're trying to build here in Houston. We have several new guys we want them to come and feel like this is a great group and we're going to build this together."
