The Houston Rockets will retire the No. 13 jersey of James Harden.

“James Harden will always be a Rocket,” Tilman Fertitta said via text message Tuesday. “Of course, we will retire his jersey. He made my first three years of owning this franchise unforgettable. The success he brought this franchise over eight years and the memories he created for our fan base/community (are) truly remarkable.”

Harden won an MVP with the Rockets and also led the team to two appearances in the Western Conference Finals.

The Rockets have retired the uniform numbers of Calvin Murphy (23), Moses Malone (24), Hakeem Olajuwon (34), Rudy Tomjanovich (45), Clyde Drexler (22) and Yao Ming (11), along with the initials of longtime assistant coach and executive Carroll Dawson.
