The Philadelphia 76ers’ trade with the Brooklyn Nets was ostensibly the greatest trade in front of the 2022 NBA Trade Deadline. The Nets got Ben Simmons, Seth Curry, Andre Drummond, and two first-round picks in return for James Harden and Paul Millsap.
Why James Harden wanted to be traded?
One of the additional stunning pieces of information paving the way to the NBA’s 2022 trade deadline was the talk that James Harden needed to be traded from the Brooklyn Nets after just being with the team for around one season.
The Nets were thought of as a “super team” and with three high-profile hotshots in Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, and Harden. They were a not kidding danger.
However, a progression of wounds saw them pushed out by the Milwaukee Bucks in a rush to the title. Many accepted that the threesome would return more grounded than at any other time in 2022. Be that as it may, with Kyrie Irving missing a huge load of home games in light of his inoculation position, inconvenience started blending in Brooklyn.
Inside two or three days of the trade deadline being declared, reports flowed that Harden looked for from Brooklyn. Numerous NBA fans figured the justification for this might be that James most likely didn’t have any desire to play with Durant once more. or rather wants a free-more-defying role as a scorer.
Harden left the Nets a day prior to trade deadline
The main events for this trade are Simmons and Harden. Simmons hasn’t played for the Sixers since they were taken out of the 2021 NBA Playoffs in Game 7 of the second round. In the meantime, Harden missed six of his last eight games in Brooklyn. While he has been managing a hamstring injury, he probably sat out in light of the looming trades and strains with his team.
As per ESPN, Harden left the team before the arrangement was even last. “Harden informed them that he was returning to Houston on Wednesday to wait out the deadline, sources said.”
The star didn’t play in Tuesday night misfortune against the Boston Celtics, let his team know that he was leaving New York on Wednesday, and was authoritatively traded on Thursday. The arrangement was concluded and advanced under two hours before the 2022 NBA Trade Deadline.
The Sixers have games Friday and Saturday night, yet Harden will not be making his Philadelphia debut presently. He will be assessed by Sixers’ clinical staff over the course of the end of the week and might actually play in the Sixers versus Boston Celtics game Tuesday night.
