Eager to help the 76ers get stronger this summer, James Harden declined his $47.4 million player option for next season. Finally, he said yes to a contract of $ 69 million for the next two years as reported by ESPN. “The Beard” will receive $33 million in 2022-23 before a player option of $35.6 million in 2023-24. Thanks to this boost from the 32-year-old superstar, the Philadelphia club were able to sign PJ Tucker and Danuel House this summer.
Ancien MVP and best sixth man, James Harden went through OKC, Houston and Brooklyn before coming to the 76ers last season. He shot 21 points, 7.1 rebounds and 10.5 assists in 21 games.
