Joel Embiid's Stance Against James Harden Drama Revealed

Published September 6, 2023 at 11:17 PM

Philadelphia 76ers fans have expressed concerns regarding the ongoing James Harden drama and its potential impact on Joel Embiid's future with the team. However, the reigning MVP has made it clear that he intends to navigate the situation without adding more complexity.

ESPN's Ramona Shelburne recently delved into the behind-the-scenes details of the ongoing feud between Harden and the 76ers. Inside sources revealed that Embiid has given the franchise assurance that he's willing to endure the current drama with Harden.

Tyrese Maxey has echoed a similar sentiment, indicating his willingness to delay a contract extension until next summer to assist the team in managing salary cap constraints and bolstering their roster.

While Embiid and Maxey don't seem to be taking sides in the Harden vs. Daryl Morey dispute, both star players maintain personal relationships with Harden. Notably, Embiid extended an invitation to Harden for his wedding in July, though Harden did not attend.

Recent reports have speculated that Embiid may request a trade in the near future, and there's a theory that Morey may be open to a complete roster overhaul in Philadelphia.

As of now, the 76ers face the challenge of resolving the Harden situation as active trade discussions have temporarily halted. The upcoming training camp promises to be a compelling moment for the team.
