President Daryl Morey chimes in on James Harden’s future with Sixers

At the moment, the Philadelphia 76ers have bigger issues to worry about rather than the offseason. They have roughly six weeks to go until the playoffs begin and their focus is set on looking to make a deep run into the playoffs and looking to finally win the title they are built to win.

However, one has to wonder about the future of James Harden. The future Hall of Fame guard re-signed with the Sixers, but it was a 1+1 deal meaning he has a player option for the 2023-24 season. One has to figure he will opt out and look for more money as he continues to make a big impact out on the floor.

President Daryl Morey joined ESPN’s Sportscenter and he chimed in on Harden’s future:

I know he’s just focused on this season and not the offseason, but I know that he’s focused on winning the championship. He’s gonna be wherever he feels like he has the best chance. Obviously, his pairing with (Joel) Embiid is very, very good and we feel like it’s a great pairing for the long term.

There have been plenty of reports that Harden is very interested in returning to the Houston Rockets and the Rockets also believe that a reunion is possible, but it wouldn’t make much sense for him. The Beard has done everything an NBA player can accomplish in the league except winning a title. The Sixers offer him the best opportunity to do so at this point in time.
