Rumor: James Harden could follow Mike D'Antoni to Sixers?


James Harden to Philly? Apparently, it's not impossible.

As the Sixers continue to search for a head coach, now one month after firing Brett Brown on August 24th, NBCSportsPhiladelphia's John Clark tweets that some folks inside the Sixers' organization believe Mike D'Antoni could lure Harden to Philly.

Harden, 31, is an eight-time all-star, six-time All-NBA first teamer, and 2018 Most Valuable Player. He would certainly change the feeling surrounding the 76ers and their future.

Harden is set to make over $40 million in each of the next two seasons before a 2022-23 player option for $47.3 million kicks in.

D'Antoni, 69, has spent the last four seasons coaching Harden in Houston and was let go on September 13th after the Rockets were eliminated in the second-round of the playoffs. D'Antoni, along with Tyronn Lue, is one of the top two candidates to replace Brown as the Sixers' next head coach.

To compliment matters a bit more, Rockets GM Daryl Morey is reportedly in the market for a new job, as well.
