Sources: James Harden, seeking trade, not at 76ers media day

In what's expected to be a continuing push for a trade, Philadelphia 76ers star James Harden isn't attending the team's Media Day on media day on Monday.

Harden wants a trade to the LA Clippers, but although the two teams have talked recently, there's been no traction on a deal, sources told ESPN. The Sixers' asking price remains high, and the Clippers don't seem inclined to bid against themselves in a marketplace that is cool to unloading significant trade assets for Harden, sources said.

Harden exercised his $35.6 million contract option for the season in June with hopes of the Sixers trading him before camp, but Philadelphia president of basketball operations Daryl Morey has shown a willingness to wait out Harden and try to get him reinvested in the team.
