James Harden is officially a member of the Brooklyn Nets.

The Nets formally announced the acquisition of the ex-Houston Rockets star on Thursday in a three-team deal, which also included the Cleveland Cavaliers.

"Adding an All-NBA player such as James to our roster better positions our team to compete against the league's best," said Nets general manager Sean Marks in a statement. "James is one of the most prolific scorers and playmakers in our game, and we are thrilled to bring his special talents to Brooklyn."

Here's a full breakdown of the blockbuster trade:
