In recent days, there has been increased media coverage on James Harden’s alleged plans to get traded away from the Brooklyn Nets. According to the reports, he was uncomfortable making his trade request public because, as you’ll recall, he previously asked to be traded away from the Houston Rockets a couple of years ago. It seems the speculation was true because on Thursday (February 10), it was announced that the Brooklyn Nets had traded James Harden to the Philadelphia 76ers for Ben Simmons, Seth Curry, Andre Drummond, and two first-round draft picks.
