Michael Scotto: James Harden on his $47 million player option: “I’ll be here. Whatever allows this team to continue to grow, get better and do the things necessary to compete at the highest level.” Harden said the ball didn’t get to him. Asked if Doc Rivers called plays for him: “Next question.”

Stefan Bondy @SBondyNYDN
Man how much money did James Harden cost himself by not signing the extension with Brooklyn? – 10:51PM

Aaron J. Fentress @AaronJFentress
Hey, Philadelphia 76ers fan, how ya feeling about trashing on Ben Simmons now?
Good luck with paying Harden $250 million over the next 5 years or losing him and thus Simmons and other assets for nada. – 10:40PM

Jason Walker @JasonWalkerNBA
Looked like the Heat were doing the same kind of flowing, suffocating defense to Harden like they did to Trae. – 10:39PM

Jimmy Butler has 32 points in a close out game. How many yall barked about me about him for years, clowning him over his offense (though he can change games withOUT scoring which is a greater skill) while gawking over Harden? Where yall at?🤣 – 10:26PM

Sam Quinn @SamQuinnCBS
I went deep on James Harden’s upcoming contract negotiations with the Sixers:
How much is he actually worth?
Are there feasible trades? Very few come to mind.
“Could Philly…just…let him walk?” How could they replace him?

Micah Adams @MicahAdams13
Would you pay Grayson Allen $60 million a year?
Of course not.
But that’s exactly what any team who pays James Harden the max would be doing.
Here’s why:

Sam Quinn @SamQuinnCBS
I think James Harden would’ve won a championship if he’d stayed in OKC.
I think James Harden would’ve won a championship if he’d just fixed his relationship with Chris Paul in Houston.
I think James Harden would’ve won a championship if he’d waited out NYC’s vaccine mandate. – 10:18PM

Rob Perez @WorldWideWob
Ben Simmons and James Harden attempting the same number of second half shots in Philly’s last two elimination games was the only way this could have ended. – 10:00PM

StatMuse @statmuse
Who won the Harden/Simmons trade? – 10:00PM

Quinton Mayo @Real Quinton Mayo
James Harden shot under 50% on layups and dunks (a minimum 300 attempts) during the regular season, per Second Spectrum tracking.
The only other player was the New York Knicks’ RJ Barrett. – 9:58PM

Michael Lee @MrMichaelLee
Everybody knows how much Daryl Morey loves James Harden but he has to make a decision this summer based on what his eyes have seen, not his heart. Latching the rest of Joel Embiid’s prime to an anvil of an extension for Harden wouldn’t just be a mistake, it would be malpractice. – 9:57PM

Kamenetzky Brothers @Kam Brothers
In the interest of both fairness and chaos, someone needs to ask Doc if James Harden can be the starting shooting guard on a championship team. AK- 9:53PM

Peter Vecsey @PeterVecsey1
James Harden (and Walton) voted to Top 76 by dolts, but not Klay, Manu, Parker, Lanier, Issel or Bellamy!!!! – 9:53PM

James Harden playing with “no pressure” this playoffs:
— Lowest PPG since he was in OKC
— Lowest FGM since he was in OKC
— Lowest FTA since he was in OKC
— Lowest FG% since 2014 pic.twitter.com/sduURshBuj9:52PM

Barry Jackson @flasportsbuzz
Harden 0 for 2 and 3 TOs in second half (be glad your team didn’t trade for him last year)…. Strus never had a double double in first 119 NBA games. Now has that in two high-stakes games in a row. – 9:51PM

Sam Quinn @SamQuinnCBS
My honest guess is that James Harden opts in and he and the Sixers resolve to figure things out over the next year.
If he earns a new deal, he’ll get one. If not? I imagine Morey seeks out Harris trades so he can try to reload with max cap space in 2023. – 9:50PM

Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
I wrote this for @spotrac before James Harden was traded to Philadelphia. But all of it holds true if you swap the Nets for the Sixers. The numbers have updated slightly with an increased projection cap, but not enough to really matter. Still a TON of $$:

Tom Haberstroh @tomhaberstroh
James Harden missed a floater with 8:54 left in the first quarter — the Danny Green injury play. That was the last 2-pointer that Harden took for the rest of the elimination game. – 9:48PM

StatMuse @statmuse
James Harden is 1-8 in his last 9 elimination games. pic.twitter.com/cyUaWKBxr79:46PM

Dane Moore @DaneMooreNBA
If James Harden opts in to his $47.367M player option, the only player in the league who will make more than him next season is Steph Curry ($48.070M) – 9:45PM

Stephen Noh @StephNoh
James Harden’s contract negotiations are going to be a tricky endeavor.
I laid out the options, talked to @kmedved to see what insight we could gain from his DARKO NBA projections, and gave my opinion on what the Sixers should do: sportingnews.com/us/nba/news/ja…9:44PM

StatMuse @statmuse
James Harden has 0 points in his last two 4th quarters.
Ben Simmons had 3 points in his last two 4th quarters with the Sixers. pic.twitter.com/HrUNtzLowQ9:43PM

John Schuhmann @johnschuhmann
Damn, Harden got outscored by the guy who used to stand in the corner & watch him dribble in Houston. – 9:43PM

Marc J. Spears @MarcJSpears
This is the first time in James Harden’s career that he played 40+ minutes in any game and did not attempt a free throw. @ESPNStatsInfo9:43PM

Brian Mahoney @briancmahoney
Might have to go back to Y2K for the last thing that got as much hype but had as little impact as the Harden-Simmons swap. – 9:42PM
