James Harden and Joel Embiid

Now that a champion has finally been crowned for the 2019-20 season, offseason NBA trade rumors are coming in full force.

On Thursday, a new report indicated that the Houston Rockets, who may be looking to shake things up for a second straight offseason, are interested in Philadelphia 76ers big man Joel Embiid.

This is a surprising report given the information at hand.

While everything is reportedly available except for former MVP James Harden, it is a bit mysterious what the 76ers would want in exchange for Embiid.

After all, it is generally believed that Houston star Russell Westbrook’s best basketball is behind him.

As for Embiid, he is still just 26 years old and in the prime of his career. Last season, he averaged 23.0 points, 11.6 rebounds and 3.0 assists per game.

Embiid would be a fascinating player to pair with Harden in Houston. The only question is what the Rockets truly have to offer to get a deal done.
