We have an update. Sixers fans have been enjoying (or not enjoying) a lull in updates but we got one on Wednesday evening. James Harden has reached an agreement in principle to return to the Sixers on a two-year deal.
He’ll be here at least one more year, and barring major setbacks, likely opt out and revisit this scenario come summer of 2023. ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski had the scoop about the “one-plus-one” framework:
Harden will make $33M for the 2022-2023 season, and has the player option for $35.6M in 2023-2024, sources tell ESPN.
