“Slow News Week?” The 10-time All-Star replied.

People in the comments were mocking the 33-year-old Harden, who requested a trade to the Philadelphia 76ers last month.

One user said, “I think James Harden is trying to hack his way out of Philly.”

Another wrote, “James Harden knocking himself out Philly, trill burger style.”

In June, it was reported that Harden would pick up his $35.6 million deal for the upcoming season with the intention of being traded to Philly.

Harden signed a two-year, $68.6 million contract with the 76ers during free agency last offseason after being traded from Brooklyn to Philly in 2022.

Daryl Morey, the 76ers’ president of basketball operations, went on Philadelphia’s 97.5 FM last week to discuss Harden and what the team would be looking for in a potential trade and the rumors that their relationship had soured.

“He is wishing for a different position contractually. … If we can do something that’s beneficial, helps the Sixers, we’ll look at it. If we can’t, we won’t,” Morey said, according to athletic,

Morey said they would instead look for a player who “keeps helping us like last year” or, they would make a deal in which “we get enough draft picks in the deal and things like that that we can turn him into a player who can be a running mate with Joel.” [Embiid],

Harden, who averaged 21 points and 10.7 assists last season, removed any mention of the 76ers from his Instagram and Twitter bios last week.

Morey said, “If we don’t get a great player or something that we can turn into a great player, we’re not going to do it.”

“We would all be thrilled if James changes his mind… but at this point he prefers to do business and we’re trying to respect that.”
