After the LA Clippers’ trade rumors faded, Sam Amick of The Athletic reported that James Harden will not play for the Philadelphia 76ers in the upcoming season. This is due to the fact that he has been focused on his trade request since the summer began.

Furthermore, fans may wonder if Harden will sit out for the 76ers this season and join his preferred destination next summer. To a certain extent, there is a possibility this could happen. Additionally, this strategy would make it much easier for Harden to acquire the long-term deal he has requested.

Moreover, earlier this morning, Harden shared his thoughts on the 76ers’ president, Daryl Morey. Based on what the former MVP had to say, the LA Clippers should immediately stop the trade hunt, especially if that means letting go of high-quality role players.
