Article Summary:

“It’s James Harden,” Embiid replied when asked about his reaction to the trade, before shouting out his other teammates that departed in the deal. Embiid has played with some strong players in Philadelphia, but none have been on Harden’s level offensively. Harden’s sheer presence out on the floor should open things up in a major way for Embiid – who consistently faces double or even triple teams – and vice versa. “So now you really got a choice. Are you going to double me or are you going to double him? So you got to make that decision and based on every game it might change.”

Given his abilities on the offensive end, Harden projects to be a better fit alongside Embiid than Simmons ever was.
