With the Philadelphia 76ers acquiring James Harden from the Brooklyn Nets, the question becomes how long will Harden be in Philadelphia?
He had the option to become an unrestricted free agent in the 2022 offseason, but he quickly put those thoughts to bed.
Harden will officially opt in to his $47.3 million player option for the 2022-23 season meaning he will remain with the Sixers. This means the Sixers are back at the top of the list of Eastern Conference title contenders.
The Sixers also catch a bit of a salary-cap break.
