James Harden intends to re-sign with the Philadelphia 76ers as a free agent
James Harden made the decision to leave the Nets in February after feeling they weren’t serious enough about winning a title. He drastically deviated from the usual scoring and took over as moderator, just like when he came off the bench for the Thunder. In his first season with the team, he averaged 24.6 points, 8.5 rebounds and 10.9 assists per game but only played 36 games after being traded from the Houston Rockets midseason.
He averaged 22.5 points, 8 rebounds and 10.2 assists per game with the Nets last season before being traded to the Philadelphia 76ers in exchange for Ben Simmons, Seth Curry and Andre Drummond. His game would degrade further, putting up just 21 points and 7.1 rebounds while staying the same in relief. He averaged under 20 points in the playoffs, which affected the Sixers, who were suffering through injury without Joel Embiid.

Chris Russo slams James Harden’s choice of money over legacy
James Harden turned down a player extension offered by the Sixers in hopes of earning a larger Max contract as a free agent. However, he plans to resign with the team. Chris “Mad Dog” Russo felt that Harden’s thirst for money didn’t live up to his legacy. “We also have to be fair, he shouldn’t worry about money to Harden. You should worry about the scenario in 20 years.
“No one will remember how much money they made. How about winning a championship? Too many athletes say, “Okay, let me get mine and let them worry about what they can take.” LeBron, he wants $97 million or whatever his due? How about taking less so the Lakers can add components to the team? Because at the end of the day, it’s about winning championships. That’s all it’s about. That and the legacy.”
