As James Harden puts the full-court press on the Rockets to get out of Houston, it appears that he may be looking for a one-ticket to Philadelphia.
On ESPN's First Take this morning, Stephen A. Smith claims that Harden would welcome a trade to the Sixers:
"The bottom line is James Harden wants out. He wants out by any means necessary. He wants to go to Philly from what I'm being told even more so than Brooklyn."

Following a Herculean effort from Joel Embiid last night where he dropped 45 points, it's understandable that the Sixers might want more offensive firepower from the perimeter to complete the big man. There are few, if any, guys in the league who could do that better than Harden.
