It’s no longer a secret for anyone now, the Sixers absolutely want James Harden, and they will do everything to get him this summer. We begin to think about all the conceivable stratagems to convince him, and one is particularly crazy.
It’s a rumor that has swelled in recent days in the NBA microcosm: a year after his arrival in Brooklyn, following an astonishing and intense showdown with the Rockets, James Harden would already want to pack his bags. Quite surprising information when you know how strong the Nets are when the Big 3 is complete. The problem is that the Barbu is almost never aligned with Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant.
The point guard is available 50% of the time due to being unvaccinated, so he can’t play franchise home games, and Kevin Durant is currently injured. At 32, James Harden therefore has to take on a lot of the responsibilities in the franchise, which he may be starting to find annoying. And in case of another failure in the quest for the title, he could change air and try his luck elsewhere.
James Harden in Philadelphia with… Lil Baby?!
That’s good, Daryl Morey, with whom he knew everything in Houston, would do anything to bring him to the Sixers this summer, with an already specific operation in mind. And obviously, the owners of the franchise would also think of ways to convince him… Michael Rubin would have had a rather improbable idea, but who knows, who does not try anything, nothing gains.
The Sixers are ‘all the way’ in on James Harden, per @PompeyOnSixers

The Sixers are « all in » on James Harden. Co-owner Michael Rubin is « close » with James Harden’s best friend Lil Baby.
According to information from Keith Pompey, journalist for theInquire in Philadelphia, the co-owner of the franchise could use his relationship with Lil Baby as an argument to convince James Harden to come to Pennsylvania next summer! A rather surprising approach when you know that the rapper is not linked to the Sixers, but to the franchise of his hometown, namely the Hawks. In any case, fans are speechless in the face of this announcement:
Lil Baby moving the needle for a blockbuster NBA trade is nuts

Lil Baby who plays a role in a Blockbuster trade in the NBA is crazy.
James Harden gets along particularly well with Lil Baby, as well as franchise co-owner Michael Rubin. The latter will therefore try to play on this common relationship to convince the Bearded Man to put his bags down in Philadelphia.
