James Harden remained in the headlines this past summer following his trade request from the Philadelphia 76ers earlier in the offseason.
He only featured in one-and-a-half seasons for the 76ers, but the lack of future commitment seemingly didn’t sit well with him.
As a result, Harden wants to be traded to the Los Angeles Clippers as soon as possible.
Many thought that Harden may figure out the issues with the organization and ultimately return to it.
However, according to NBACentral on Twitter, Harden’s relationship with the 76ers is apparently “beyond repair.”

It certainly comes as a surprise since the 76ers hired Daryl Morey.
Morey shared a great relationship with Harden during their time together with the Houston Rockets.
But a lot of things have changed since then.
So much so that Harden publicly called Morey a liar and it was most likely the final nail in the coffin for the 34-year-old’s relationship with the 76ers.
Sure, Harden is still one of the top players at his position, but the market is certainly thin for the former NBA MVP.
After all, no team wants to give away a lot of assets for just a rental year of Harden.
Harden has demanded multiple trades over the last few seasons and it has had a negative impact on his reputation.
