James Harden has important decisions to make.

James Harden is certainly one of the biggest names in the entire NBA. Although he may not be the player he used to be, he is still an effective playmaker. Overall, he did a solid job with the Philadelphia 76ers. However, he has always struggled in the playoffs, and we saw that against the Celtics. Now, he is a free agent and most pundits out there believe he wants to leave Philadelphia. Simply put, playing for Doc Rivers is just not the move. Consequently, a lot of speculation is happening right now.

For the vast majority of the season, the consensus was that Harden would go to the Houston Rockets. Of course, he has a history with that team. Moreover, they have a young core and there would be few expectations to win. Additionally, the team now has Ime Udoka who is seen as a fantastic head coach. It is certainly an interesting place for him to go. However, now, a new team is joining the rumor mill. In fact, this is a team that will be desperate to add some depth to the roster.

James Harden: The Decision

According to reporter Brian Geltzeiler, the Phoenix Suns are rumored to be on James Harden's radar. Of course, the team has the talents of Kevin Durant and Devin Booker. Harden's former teammate Chris Paul is in Phoenix as well, however, it has been reported that the Suns are looking to get rid of him. That said, perhaps James Harden would fit in well on the team. Meanwhile, there are also rumors that the Suns could be pursuing Kyrie Irving. Although this would end up being a mistake, most likely.

Either way, this should end up being a compelling free agency. If the Houston Rockets get the first pick and secure Victor Wembanyama, then perhaps James Harden will just go to Houston. At that point, the team will be a very attractive option. Let us know where you want to see Harden go, in the comments section below.
