Sixers unload disgruntled James Harden in blockbuster trade with Clippers

The saga between the Philadelphia 76ers and 10-time All-Star James Harden has seemingly come to an end. 

A disgruntled Harden has been noticeably absent from the 76ers lineup to start the 2023 NBA season following a trade request and his public criticism of 76ers president Daryl Morey, whom he called a “liar.”

“Daryl Morey is a liar and I will never be a part of an organization that he’s a part of,” Harden vowed in August.

Harden, who picked up his $35.6 million contract option in June with the belief the team would trade him, was acquired by the 76ers at the 2022 trade deadline from Brooklyn. 

He is now preparing to play for his fifth NBA team.
