The exact terms of a one-plus-one deal between NBA superstar shooter James Harden as well as the Philadelphia 76ers, in which Harden will accept a $15 million penalty, are still being worked out. However, Harden has stated that he is “locked in” with the Sixers.
James Harden, a 10-time All-Star, opened up about his willingness to take a pay cut for the team during an exclusive meeting with Yahoo Sports on this Sunday. He also discussed the offseason additions, his current health, his friendship and business venture with Joel Embiid, and the release of his initial signature wine selection, J-Harden.
James Harden Explains Daryl To Improve The Roster
The Sixers’ lack of depth was noted as a major, obvious flaw following the 2021-22 season. James Harden and Daryl Morey, the director of basketball operations, talked shortly after concerning how the squad may improve for the upcoming season.
To achieve their potential, the Sixers need Harden to be relatively close to his regular dominant self. The 2018 MVP had a rough year due in part to a nagging right hamstring strain.
The 21 regular season games he played for Philadelphia after being dealt from Brooklyn were marred by a barrage of criticism for his performance. The 32-year-old veteran’s averages of 21 points, 7.1 rebound, and 10.5 assist with the Sixers were lower than they usually are because to his diminished offensive explosions.
I usually ignore what other people have to say. Even though I was not 100 percent last year, I still managed to average a triple-double for my team, James Harden informed Yahoo Sports. People were accustomed to me scoring 40, or 30 goals, so they saw it as a bad year. If anyone else had those stats, we would be speaking about their getting the max. For a few months, I was stationed in Philadelphia, where I was forced to pick up skills as I went along. In fact, it was the case. Now that the season has ended, all I can think about is how much I can improve next year.
