The Philadelphia 76ers have failed to find a trade partner for James Harden.
Harden has disappeared on them and even publically called GM Daryl Morey a liar.
Morey’s ways have often been questioned, but so have Harden’s, and some believe he may not have a future in the NBA for much longer because of that.
Should that be the case, then it seems like Harden has already figured out his next career step, as he recently told Sixers’ beat writer Keith Pompey that he could see himself playing in China (via Legion Hoops).
James Harden sees a future in China 👀
“Every time I come here, the love is just like … it's crazy, you know what I mean? So I feel like they deserve to actually see me come play here.”

Harden admits that the love and frenzy around him every time he sets foot in the Asian country is quite crazy, which is why he feels like they have earned the right to have him in the league.
Usually, most players use the Chinese league — or any other foreign competition — as a last resort when their days in the NBA are over, but Harden is actually looking forward to the opportunity.
Not so long ago, 29 out of 30 NBA teams would’ve gone all-in to get a player like him.
But judging how he’s forced his way out of every team he’s played, and given his history of poor performances in the playoffs, that’s no longer the case.NEXT: Kendrick Perkins Makes Bold Prediction About James Harden's NBA Future
