The Philadelphia Sixers’ star point guard, James Harden, is likely to play for the Golden State Warriors in the upcoming season. The 34-year-old requested a move to the Clippers, but the Sixers are reluctant to send him there. This is not the first instance when he asked for a trade. He did it twice before as well and was successful in playing for his desired team.
The veteran would like to keep the streak and play for the Clippers, but his relationship with the management is getting worse day by day. Recently he called the Sixers’ president a liar. The Sixers want too much in exchange for their star, and most teams can not afford it. But the Warriors would like to pull it off and land James on their roster. Can they make it happen? Here is all the information you need about the trade between the Philadelphia Sixers and the Golden State Warriors involving James Harden.

What would the Warriors offer for James Harden?
The Warriors are expected to offer Andrew Wiggins, Gary Payton, and Moses Moody in exchange for the Sixers’ #1. Former LeBron James teammate and one of the greatest scorers of the league charted the most assists per game for the second time in his career last season. The Sixers do not want to let him go since that would make them weaker, and it might also push Joel Embiid to ask for a trade.
