As the NBA offseason unfolds, James Harden’s future with the Philadelphia 76ers remains uncertain, with recent reports indicating that the star has no intention of participating in the team’s upcoming training camp.
This decision comes in the wake of unsuccessful trade negotiations between the Sixers and Harden’s preferred destination the Clippers.
Harden faced obstacles as Philadelphia set a high asking price for the former league MVP. The resultant impasse has led to a standstill in the trade discussions.
While the Sixers have reportedly put an end to the trade talks and are intent to have Harden at the training camp, the 33-year-old superstar appears to have different plans.
According to Sam Amick of The Athletic, a source close to Harden has confirmed that he no longer wishes to play for the Sixers and has no intention of participating in the training camp. The exact course of action remains uncertain, with potential developments still up in the air.
