James Harden's Contract Plans Get An Update

James Harden was traded to the Philadelphia 76ers last season in what turned out to be a blockbuster deal that also involved none other than Ben Simmons. It was a huge move for both sides, and now, Harden is up for a brand new contract extension. Of course, the Sixers superstar has a $47 million option available for next season, and there have been rumblings of what Harden would do. 

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, Harden is looking to opt-in on that remaining year for $47 million. This was not much of a surprise especially when you consider how Harden could never get that type of money again given his recent play. With that being said, it seems as though the Sixers and Harden are looking to keep an extension short, with two years as a sweet spot.
