One of the brightest spots of the offseason for the LA Clippers has been their spot in the race to acquire James Harden. One top priority was adding a third star, and Harden does just that. Even better, he is widely regarded as a top-20 player and can chime in as a first and second option when needed.

Furthermore, with how injuries have played out for the LA Clippers, an offensive machine like Harden is exactly what they need. Not to mention he would be a golden fit next to Kawhi Leonard and Paul George.

Moreover, Harden has been pushing for a trade to the LA Clippers for quite some time. This is no surprise as he is a former teammate of Russell Westbrook and would be in a place to win a championship with head coach Tyronn Lue.

That said, Harden used his platform to create buzz around his trade request to the LA Clippers.

James Harden’s latest social media post may indicate a trade to the LA Clippers.

As the 76ers’ front office has not made any moves on James Harden, the former league MVP is trying to shake things up on social media. This is a clear sign that he will do all he can to find his way out of Philadelphia.

While this post could mean nothing, Harden is likely using his Instagram following to create leverage with the 76ers. This is a tactic that many athletes use, especially in situations such as this.
