James Harden Now Being Linked to Clippers in Trade Rumors

Is James Harden going to  be dealt before the trade deadline?

The latest rumor has James Harden going to the Clippers. Behind the scenes there’s a lot of chirping that this could actually happen. The Athletic’s Sam Amick acknowledged the Clippers as a potential on Tuesday, and whispers have continued to grow ever since. The Clippers have the salaries to match a deal and give the Brooklyn Nets players who could actually help them this season.

“It could be Philly, or the Clippers, or some other place where [Harden] doesn’t have to wonder if Kyrie Irving is playing that night or if his well-chronicled style of play will be pegged as a problem whenever times are tough,” Amick wrote in his recent article about Harden’s situation.


Harden has a $47.4 million player option for the 2022-23 season and is unlikely to opt out, but you never know.

He would be a pretty expensive short term rental.
