Lately, James Harden has been in the news due to a brewing rumor of trade talk that has left fans concerned. Harden’s stint with the Philadelphia 76ers seemed to be neverending. However, there is so much more than what meets the eye in the 76ers camp. According to sources, Harden has put in an official request to move out of his current team so that he could join the Clippers for the upcoming season.
It is known amongst the NBA community that Harden has been on a goose chase in an attempt to join the Clippers. However, till now, he has not struck gold. Now with the rumor slowly transitioning into a reality, the idea of Harden in the 79ers roster is intriguing to fans and critics.
Still, the idea does not appeal to everyone present in the community in the same way. A former NBA Champion has other opinions about the swap. Former Boston Celtic’s Kendrick Perkins, in an interview with ESPN, said, “I don’t think James Harden is the answer.”
Perkins further added, “We’re talking about a Clippers team who we’ve been having high expectations for over what, the last 4-5 seasons? They can’t stay healthy. And then all of a sudden, you bring in Russell Westbrook …you bring in James Harden and then what? What is he actually going to do?” Therefore, trying actually to pinpoint the issue Clippers need to address.
Furthermore, Perkins also questioned where Harden would be put on the team roster. Since the positions are mostly filled. Pekins also added, “ If James Harden is all about winning, then he stay(s) right where he’s at with Joel Embiid… and just won his MVP. Period.” Therefore, taking a hard pass with the idea of Harden being in the Clippers. Keep following our page for more such content.
