The NBA community appears split on the situation between James Harden and the Philadelphia 76ers.
Some have indicated that the 76ers should just trade him away, easing any conflict that may persist.
Others believe that Harden should play out his contract, rescinding his comments about a potential trade.
In a recent Instagram post shared via NBA Central, teammate P.J. Tucker showed his allegiance.

Tucker shared, “I’m not acrobatic, I’m not flippin’ on my bros,” a caption that includes a photo of him and Harden.
While Tucker is still under contract with the 76ers, his comments are directed at the team.
He appears to support Harden in his latest endeavor, even if it’s at odds with his current team.
Harden and Damian Lillard are two of the NBA’s biggest stars, and both are in disputes with their organizations.
Lillard is unhappy with the Portland Trail Blazers, and reportedly wants to be traded to the Miami Heat.
Harden’s situation is different, as he doesn’t have a specific team in mind, but it’s clear he wants to leave Philadelphia.
Whether the team will grant this request remains to be seen.
Harden has continued to speak out against the organization, recently calling the team president a “liar.”
He’s also indicated that he refuses to play another game with Daryl Morey as his leader, putting both parties in a precarious situation.
There are a lot of dominoes left to fall in this situation.
With two months until the season begins, the 76ers are running out of time to mend current woes.NEXT: Insider Details James Harden's Plans To Make 76ers 'Uncomfortable'
