Latest Update on James Harden to Clippers Trade

The LA Clippers and 76ers will reportedly reengage on a James Harden trade

There have not been many reports about James Harden's trade request over the last several weeks, but The Athletic's Shams Charania recently reported that the LA Clippers and Philadelphia 76ers are expected to reengage in trade discussions again this offseason.

"The Philadelphia 76ers and LA Clippers are expected to engage again in discussions on a Harden trade this offseason, league sources who are involved in the discussions but unauthorized to speak on the matter say. Harden still prefers to be moved, and Philadelphia is working to honor his wish, as 76ers president of basketball operations Daryl Morey recently said," Charania wrote.

This isn't a massive update, but it does at least indicate that the two sides have not given up on a potential deal, which can often be the case when one side feels the other is being unreasonable. As of right now, it seems the 76ers are weighing the risks of letting this drag into training camp, where they would seemingly be bringing an unhappy James Harden into the mix.

The Clippers have been the only team with reported interest in Harden, and they're also the only team he wants to play for. This gives them a bit of leverage that begins explaining why they have not offered Philadelphia what they may be seeking in any trade for their star guard.
