Report: 76ers Taking a Run at James Harden

Good luck getting James Harden out of Houston, but if you read the reports surfacing, it looks like the Philadelphia 76ers are going to take a run at it.

According to Shams Charania, the 76ers are expected to pursue Harden, even though the Rockets are very emphatically denying any interest in moving one of the NBA's best players.

The Rockets and 76ers now have ties of course, as Daryl Morey left his post in Houston and has become the President of Basketball Operations in Philadelphia. No clue yet if this helps or hurts there chances of acquiring Harden, but it sure sounds like he's not available.

Would you trade James Harden? 

We didn't think so...
