James Harden on Nets-76ers trade: NBA stars can mostly control own destiny

NBC Sports


Article Summary:

Philadelphia-Harden smoke thickened and thickened until the Nets clearly felt they had little choice but to deal a sulking Harden to the 76ers as long as Philadelphia made a suitable offer.

Despite a report otherwise, Harden didn’t exercise his player option in conjunction with the trade. What if the 76ers lose earlier than expected in the playoffs? What if Harden and Embiid don’t mesh as hoped?

Harden opting in would’ve provided security to Philadelphia, which dealt two future first-round picks in the trade for the possible impending free agent. “

Maybe Harden’s trade just over a year ago was exception.
