James Harden expected to sign with Rockets; Knicks have eye on Joel Embiid: report


The James Harden rumors keep coming.

First, Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports that Harden is expected to sign with the Houston Rockets in free-agency.

Harden, according to Pompey, has several business ventures in Houston and his mother still lives here. The Rockets have mutual interest, as we've discussed at length for months.

“Scenario A would be to bring James back. Scenario B, if he’s not back, we’ll have to get creative," Sixers president Daryl Morey said during his press conference this week.

Off of that report, Knicks New York Daily News reporter Stefan Bondy says the Knicks are a team to watch in regards to Joel Embiid.

Embiid, 29, is coming off of an MVP season and is under contract with the Sixers through 2025-26 with a player option in 2026-27.

Morey and the Sixers' front-office have multiple tough decisions to make this offseason, starting with Harden. This offseason could be a major crossroads for the organization.
