The Philadelphia 76ers reportedly are considering hiring former Houston Rockets head coach Mike D’Antoni in the hopes that it will help convince Rockets star James Harden to join the 76ers at some point in the future.
John Clark of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports that having D’Antoni might help grease the wheels to having the Houston guard either join the team in free agency, or perhaps via trade sooner.
I’m hearing one of the reasons along with coaching that Sixers have a lot of interest in Mike D’Antoni is feeling with some in organization that he could help lure James Harden to Philly
Harden can become a free agent in 2 years and there is possibility of trade pic.
In an age of player empowerment, it’s become the norm for players to force their way to new situations, and truth be told both of these franchises are in need of shaking things up in a big way.
