James Harden responds to rumors about his departure plans | NBA
Because James Harden has still not extended to the Nets, and that Brooklyn, finally, is unable to make the most of its « Big Three », it is rumored that the All-Star guard would see a good eye a transfer or a departure to the Sixers. He would find there Daryl Morey, his former manager at the Rockets, and he could form a sublime duo with Joel Embiid.
According to the Bleacher Report, whose rumors are always to be taken with a grain of salt, James Harden would have already spoken about it to relatives, and he would even have the blues in New York, to the point of regretting his life in Houston. He would also be annoyed by the choices of Steve Nash and the intermittent presence of Kyrie Irving. We repeat, the Bleacher Report is not the most reliable source in terms of rumors, and besides Steve Nash is very skeptical.
“I’m not sure I believe it. James and I talk all the time and I think we have a great relationship, and to be honest with you, I’m not sure of the credibility of these comments. »
« I don’t talk to anyone. I have an agent. You hear nothing from me, and yet there are articles”
Same annoyance at James Harden, questioned at a press conference on this article. « I don’t know what you’re talking about » he answers while a journalist then asks him if he likes New York. » Yes he blurts out with hallucinated eyes.
