Two teams keep on coming up every now and again with regards to a potential James Harden trade.
As per Shams Charania of The Athletic, Harden just needs to play for a contender. The conviction is that he would want to be traded to the Philadelphia 76ers or Brooklyn Nets.
Charania takes note that the Rockets would be comfortable keeping Harden or Russell Westbrook into the season, regardless of whether both are miserable.
A transition to the Sixers would rejoin Harden with general manager Daryl Morey, who carried him to Houston. Moving to the Nets would rejoin him with previous coach Mike D’Antoni, who is a right hand there. The Nets have been referenced beforehand as a potential arrival spot.
As one would expect, the two teams as of now have stars. It’s not satisfactory how the Nets would run an offense with Harden, Kyrie Irving, and Kevin Durant, however. The Sixers also have a ball-dominant player in Ben Simmons however don’t exactly have a watchman in the shape of Harden.
