    Like I keep seeing all over the media and online how Sixers are in a really bad spot. Do you they have to give him the Max at 4 years $223 mill?

    Can't they just give him $150 - $180 mill and call it a day? All 30 teams and GMs are seeing his talent decaying, you really think anyone else is going to give him the Max

    Call Harden's bluff and tell him to go to Sacramento if you want the max :yeshrug:

    They should just let him go. Getting rid of Simmons and his contract already makes the trade a W for them. Just let harden go to whoever is crazy enough to pay him

    Yes they have to.

    He's Morey's guy and Morey has to justify the trade. i'd wager on Morey getting fired and Harden being traded again prior to the end of the deal too.

    They do not have to, they shouldnt but they will

    They didnt give as much value as ppl.claim and they got off Simmons contract

    Dumb GMs always double.down on mistakes

    Harden isn’t the problem. Miami defense is great at shutting down perimeter stars and Harden is finding seams in the defense to make the right shot.

    But the 76ers don’t have any natural shooters. They got got inside out shooters who can hit assists that they receive from relatively short distances. They’re shooters built around Joel’s brand of playmaking and spacing, not Harden’s.

    If Embiid comes back and plays average, you’d see Niang and Green suddenly hit shots that they were missing earlier in the series. I’m excited for the chess match but Heat in 3.

    They have no choice unless they can convince him to opt-in

    They don't have cap space period so letting him walk is an L

    Funny thing is if they’d let him walk there’s a good chance Harden would come back with a couple All Star level seasons somewhere else.

    If James doesn't want to take less, just trade him
