76ers Pondering James Harden $260M Extension

76ers Pondering James Harden $260M Extension, The 76ers must address some uncomfortable questions about James Harden huge contract deal after trading for him at the trade deadline.

James Harden, 32, will opt out of the last year of his current $47.3 million contract. He’ll most likely sign a four-year, $223 million contract ($55.8 million AAV) in August.

Not only would he be locked in for about $260 million through 2026, but he’d also become the first player in NBA history to earn $60 million per year.

According to Sports Illustrated’s Chris Mannix, Philadelphia officials are “wary” of Harden obtaining a quarter-billion-dollar contract over the next five years.

On The Bill Simmons Podcast, Mannix said, “They’re going to give him that contract, I don’t believe there’s any doubt about that, but that’s a worry for some people down there.”

To make matters worse, Harden was chastised by head coach Doc Rivers after a 4-of-15 shooting performance in an eight-point loss to the Pistons.

Rivers added, “Well, the bench didn’t struggle.” “In defence, they didn’t get a lot of shots.” During that time, I believe it was more James than them.”

Harden’s honeymoon in Philadelphia has come to an end – at least, that’s how it feels. Harden is averaging 21.3 points on 36.4 percent shooting and 29.8 percent from three in Philly’s previous 12 games. This season, he has shot 41.4 percent from the field and 33.5 percent from three, his lowest percentages since his rookie season in 2009-2010.
