LAS VEGAS (AP) — The Houston Rockets have added four years and $160 million to James Harden's contract. The extension gives the All-Star guard the richest deal in NBA history at $228 million over six years. The extension will run through 2022-23 season but will not kick in until 2019, giving the Rockets salary cap space until then.

UNDATED (AP) — The New York Knicks have formally signed free-agent guard Tim Hardaway Jr. to a four-year, $71 million deal after the Atlanta Hawks declined to match the offer sheet.

He blew past pole-sitter Kyle Busch on the restart and earned his third win of the year to close within a point of standings leader Kyle Larson, who finished second.
