In this offseason, James Harden, the star of the 76ers, also publicly expressed that he didn’t want to continue playing for the 76ers. In the subsequent trip to China, he also publicly shouted: "I will not return to play for the 76ers, and Morey is a liar." It can be said that Harden really turned against the 76ers directly.
But what people didn’t expect was that Harden was looking forward to a summer trade to the Clippers. It seems that there is no possibility, because the Clippers have officially responded. The Clippers said: "The team has concluded any trade negotiations about James Harden. The transfer about Harden will not happen, and the team needs to move on. " The Clippers also figured it out and continued to use the combination of Leonard and George to attack the Western Conference, instead of forming the Big Three.
This time, the Clippers chose to give up Harden decisively, which directly shattered the dream of Dengo’s transfer. The 76ers also got permission if Harden refused to report to the training camp. The team can prevent Harden from becoming a free agent, which means that Dengge can only go to other teams through trade if he wants to leave. But few teams in the league are interested in him.
The Clippers are one of the few teams willing to trade him, but this time they publicly stated that they would not continue to pursue Harden. It is also quite embarrassing for Deng Ge. In the new season, it is highly probable that he will stay with the 76ers to assist Embiid. But considering that the relationship between the two players in the playoffs last season has fallen into the freezing point. If Harden doesn’t leave, he will return to the team to continue playing. Whether the whole team will still give the former mvp face is still a question.
The fans also lamented: "No team wants to be a superstar, and it makes people afraid to take risks for him in the playoffs." This is also the embarrassing place for Harden, and there are few strong teams interested in him. But he still didn’t see clearly his current strength and insisted on going to a competitive team. This makes it very likely that he will eventually learn from Simmons and leave.
