The Philadelphia 76ers and James Harden are currently working together to try and find a trade partner for him.
This would be Harden’s fourth team in the past four years, and he’s the one that has requested to be traded every single time.
That’s why Craig Carton believes he’s just one of those players who’ll never be happy and believe no place is good enough for him, even though he’s always one of the guys to blame for the fact that it didn’t work out in the first place.

Truth be told, he’s right on point there.
It wasn’t his fault that the Oklahoma City Thunder traded him to the Houston Rockets, although he did want a bigger role.
He then broke out as a superstar in Houston and led them to the playoffs over and over, becoming one of the most dominant scorers of all time.
But as soon as things went south, he showed up to training camp out of shape and called out his teammates in public to force his way out to the Brooklyn Nets.
He had the squad he wanted in Brooklyn, then all of a sudden, he felt like the dynamic was dysfunctional — even though he also got hurt in the playoffs — so he decided to take his talents to the Philadelphia 76ers.
He — literally — played with the MVP and they both choked two series leads over the Boston Celtics to be sent home in the second round — again — and now he wants out.
Harden’s lack of a market should be a reality check for him, and it doesn’t seem like any team thinks of him as the guy they need to win anymore.NEXT: Brian Windhorst Details What Is Next For James Harden After Contract Decision
