NBA Rumors: New Eastern Conference Team Linked To James Harden

The James Harden saga in Philadelphia rolls on into the season, as the team played a solid game in their season opener despite missing the former MVP, and if things don't change soon, it could risk derailing yet another promising season.

All summer long, it has appeared as though the Los Angeles Clippers would have Harden on their roster when the season began, but unfortunately, nothing has transpired, and now the Chicago Bulls have been revealed as the favourite to land him if that doesn't eventuate.

At this point, it's tough to see exactly who Chicago would offer the 76ers if they were to make a deal, but given the nature of dealing with Harden in recent times, absolutely anything could happen, and this could give the duo of DeMar Derozan and Zach Lavine just the guard they need to make a run in the Eastern Conference.
