Harden Reaches New Deal With Sixers; Could Be Free Agent Next Summer

Jonathan Grant | July 21st, 2022

James Harden is staying put in Philadelphia, but it might not be a long term deal. The superstar only joined the team earlier this year, and after much conjecture and speculation, he has reached a deal with the team to remain in place for potentially two years. The deal is said to be worth, according to sources, just over $68 million, but he has an option to come back for the second season, meaning he will ultimately decide if he stays, goes, or wants to renegotiate next summer.

This comes off the back of him telling the 76ers and the world that he would take the ‘leftovers’ so that the team could chase a title. Thus far, a title has proven to be elusive to him throughout his NBA career, and at almost 33 now, he knows that his time is now if he’s going to land one. He did average a double-double last season, scoring 22 points a game and dishing out over 10 assists per with the Nets and then Sixers, but some have opined that the peak of his powers have passed him by. It will be very interesting to see how 2022-23 plays out for the former MVP and his new-ish team.
