James Harden to wear No. 1 with Sixers, as No. 13 is Wilt Chamberlain’s retired number, per report

Article Summary:

Harden joins a Sixers team that sits fifth in the Eastern Conference standings and has perhaps the leading MVP candidate in Joel Embiid. The Sixers wanted to hold out for a trade that would net them an All-Star level player in return for the All-Defensive guard, and they landed just that in Harden, who is a former league MVP, 10-time All-Star and is capable of lighting a team up for 30-plus points on a regular basis.

It’s unclear right now when Harden’s first game will be for the Sixers, as the guard had most recently missed Brooklyn’s last four games due to a hamstring injury, but when he’s able to return his debut will be a highly anticipated one. With Harden in tow, Philadelphia should now firmly be considered championship contenders, and with the race in the Eastern Conference wide open, it wouldn’t be surprising to see the Sixers climb up the standings even more by season’s end.
