PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA — Saying he would do whatever it takes, National Basketball Association (NBA) star James Harden has vowed his team—the Philadelphia 76ers—to grow and be with the best.
The 2018 NBA Most Valuable Player has agreed to a two-year US$68.6 million deal to remain with the Sixers, league sources told the Philadelphia Inquirer just a month after he declined his US$47.4 million player option for the coming season so the 76ers could bolster their roster and chances for an NBA championship.
Sources also disclosed that Harden will reportedly make in the deal more than US$33 million in the 2022-23 season which also includes a US$35.6 million player option for 2023-24.
As the 10-time All-Star waited for his deal to emerge, the Sixers signed veteran forward P.J. Tucker and another power forward Danuel House. The development also sent Australian star Ben Simmons to the Brooklyn Nets. (ai/mtvn)
