    I wouldn't sign Harden as a parking lot attendant.

    I would. I don't think he is the problem in Philly; I think Embid and the coach are the problem.

    I'm not sure who needs more attention, Harden or this thread.

    Can we get him to renounce the remaining year on his contract and trade our second round pick for him?

    Yea! I think now a good offseason plan is now Harden, Miles Bridges, Deandre Ayton, and Ja Morant. However, the only players I would put on the table for them are Blevins, Reggie Perry and Shavlik Randolph

    You're just going to let RLEC expire? Surely we could get Jrue Holiday if we threw in Didi with RLEC.

    What was that line from Shakespeare? Something like - "I know not what to do with her, other than to make a torch of her and run away from her by her own light!"

    That is pretty much how I feel about Harden.

    Didn't Philly promise a max contract or is that just rumors? I voted No just because I think that he doesn't fit the scheme at all. I think we give this a shot with the scheme and if it fails, sadly we probably have to trade Lillard. I don't see Harden as a piece you can pivot around at all. If you sign Harden and the team is awful, then what?

    I do not think anyone is giving Harden anything close to 47M after how he has performed this season... so this conversation should be tabled until next year. Harden has a 47M player option on his current contract. The idea when the trade went down was that Morey would give him a max extension that would pay him even more than 47M next season but I don't think that's going to happen now. So the Sixers will be stuck with Harden next season at 47M and then he'll be an unrestricted free agent in 2023.
