It appears that the 76ers and Heat are the current frontrunners to land the former MVP. The Heat were two wins away from winning a championship last season.
Of course, Harden hasn’t been to an NBA Finals series since arriving in Houston in 2012. The All-Star has career averages of 29.6 points, 7.7 assists and 6.0 rebounds as a member of the Rockets.
As a result, the Rockets want a ton in return for Harden.
The Rockets recently shipped Russell Westbrook to the Washington Wizards in exchange for John Wall and a 2023 first-round pick.
