James Harden agrees with the Sixers for two years in the NBA

All-star James Harden has agreed to a two-year, $68.6 million contract to remain with the Philadelphia 76ers in the NBA, the Philadelphia Inquirer reported Wednesday.

The deal comes less than a month after the 2018 NBA MVP turned down a $47.4 million option for next season.

Harden will reportedly earn $33 million in the 2022-23 season, with a $35.6 million option for the 2023-24 campaign.

While Harden waited for the deal to go through, the Sixers signed forwards PJ Tucker and Danuel House.

Harden, a 10-time All-Star, landed in Philadelphia from Brooklyn at the trade deadline last season in a trade that sent Ben Simmons to the Nets.

The star basket player averaged 21 points; 10.5 assists and 7.1 rebounds in 21 regular season games with Philadelphia.

After the Sixers lost to the Miami Heat in the second round of the playoffs, Harden said he would do “whatever it takes to help this team continue to grow and catch up with the best.”
