Rockets in talks with more teams over James Harden

The uncertainty of the James Harden case continues about his continuity in the Houston Rockets. As reported by ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski and Ramona Shelburne, the Texans have now begun to have more serious conversations with teams other than those initially reported as Harden’s preferred destinations.

Several teams for playoff spots in the Eastern and Western conferences have told him they are in discussions with the Rockets. And accordingly, the Houston franchise has been reaching out to Harden about those possible scenarios.

The Rockets have been demanding at least one key player from each franchise plus three future first-round picks. Probably with other players in the middle to make the salaries work. The problem is whether the team that acquires Harden (outside of Barba’s favorites which are the Nets, Sixers, Bucks and Heat) will be willing to pay so much for a player that they will not give guarantees to re-sign there after his expiration. contract in two years.

Reports and denials by Ben Simmons

On the other hand, in the second part of the report, reputed journalists report that the 76ers would be willing to include Ben Simmons in one of the packages offered by Harden. Although they have affirmed that the conversations between both teams are still far from reaching an agreement.

This report was also echoed by Shams Charania of The Athletic, publishing the same information on his Twitter account. However, minutes later, Charania himself published another report in which he communicated that Daryl Morey would not be interested in releasing Simmons, and considers him a key link in the future of the team. “We are not trading Ben Simmons, he is an important part of our future,” the journalist quoted Morey.

Whatever the outcome of this story, it seems that we will have to keep waiting for more chapters of this novel. The Rockets remain focused on starting the season with Harden in their ranks, despite little efforts by the player. As long as the star does not change his mind and decides to sit down demanding the transfer, this seems to be going on for a long time. (GG) (Infobae)
