Following news of James Harden being traded to the Brooklyn Nets, there were reports of teams showing trade interest in P.J. Tucker.
The Philadelphia 76ers were outbid in the James Harden sweepstakes. With the Brooklyn Nets completing a Harden trade, Philadelphia are sticking with the Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid core for the foreseeable future.
The Philadelphia 76ers didn't trade for James Harden, despite so many reports they were the favorites to land Harden.
Records tumbled on Saturday as Tyrese Maxey led the Sixers' offense. The circumstances were horrible, yet the Sixers' rookie lit up the court against a Denver Nuggets team which was at pretty much full strength.
James Harden recently logged in his first preseason game for the new-look Houston Rockets. He has stood firm in his desire to be traded, although I do believe that the Rockets front office will stand their ground as long as they can, and see if they can rack up the wins with their new-look squad.
There are some stars who get riddled with consecutive injuries, while there are others who just don't pan out with their respective teams. With that said, let's take a look at the five worst contracts heading into the upcoming 2020-21 NBA season.
While it is true that the NBA has become a guard-driven league, the growing versatility of bigger frontcourt players is steadily stealing the spotlight. It is a much different era of basketball nowadays, and gone are All-Star centers who dominate mainly from the post.
The Dallas Mavericks had cap space on their mind this offseason. A trade for Josh Richardson cleared 2021 space and improved their team for 2020/21 despite sending an all-time great shooter to the Sixers.
With the NBA Draft complete, the Philadelphia 76ers have begun their roster overhaul. Daryl Morey made several sizeable moves on draft night, trading away Al Horford and Josh Richardson and bringing in Danny Green and Seth Curry.
Heading for a deep, lengthy rebuild, the Detroit Pistons should be focusing on asset accumulation this offseason. A trade for unwanted Sixers centre Al Horford could be a way to add draft capital.
The Sacramento Kings and Buddy Hield have hit a wall. Their relationship is a mess, with Hield not replying to text messages and very unhappy at being demoted to a sixth man role.
The Sixers and Pelicans are two teams expected to be active this offseason. A trade featuring Jrue Holiday and Al Horford has been mooted.
Just three days after being fired by the Clippers, Doc Rivers was all-but confirmed as the Philadelphia 76ers' new head coach. Philly's interest was reported earlier this week and on Thursday it became public knowledge that he is heading to Philadelphia, likely on a five-year pact.
Team general manager Elton Brand already emphasized that he is not open to letting go of All-Stars Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid, which should mean that the members of the Sixers' supporting cast are up for grabs.
The championship-aspiring Philadelphia 76ers saw their 2019-20 campaign come to an abrupt, embarrassing end with a first-round playoff exit at the hands of rivals Boston Celtics. This wasn't the plan when they acquired Josh Richardson and Al Horford last offseason, on top of extending Tobias Harris' contract.
