Last month, there was information circulating that the Philadelphia 76ers had removed veteran guard James Harden from the list of players available for trade.
However, in reality, it was the Los Angeles Clippers who put an end to discussions between the two teams, ESPN’s Brian Windhorst said on the latest edition of his “Hoop Collective” podcast (hat tip to Clippers Fan Nation).
“(The Clippers) tried to trade for James Harden, and that deal didn’t happen,” Windhorst said. “And from what I understand, it was the Clippers who said, ‘Okay, there’s no deal here. We’re gonna move on.’ And while I assume that they could certainly make a deal midseason, I assume that this is what they’re gonna go with.”
