The main soap opera of the course could be living its final stages. As reported by the journalist The Athletic Shams Charania, the Brooklyn Nets and the Philadephia 76ers will sit down for James Harden and Ben Simmons before the market closes.
Apparently New Yorkers are now open to releasing the shooting guard. Let us remember that a week ago, the journalist from ESPN Adrian Wojnarowski reported that the Nets would not listen to offers for him during the trade deadline.
Of course, the Nets would expect to receive some more piece in exchange, being in the spotlight, among others, Seth Curry. A logical interest considering that Steve Nash’s men are looking for a shooter.
As Charania explains, there have been some concerns in Brooklyn about Harden’s style of play, as the former MVP’s tendency to soak up the ball and play at his own pace contrasts with the more “fluid” approach employed by Kevin Durant and Kyrie. Irving. To fuel speculation, it should be noted that Harden has been listed as out for this Friday’s game against the Utah Jazz.
If confirmed, it would be a turn of events, since the latest information indicated that, if the operation took place, it would be delayed until the summer.
