James Harden Decline The $47.4 Million Option On His Contract For The 2022-23 NBA Season With The Philadelphia 76ers
According to the Athletic's Shame Charnia, James Harden reportedly declined the $47.4M option with the 76ers. He intends to work out a new contract with the team when NBA free agency opens, per the report.

He was always eligible this offseason for a maximum contract worth roughly $270 million over the next five years, regardless of whether or not he picked up the option, and that remains the case after this decision.

When he was asked aftermath of the last season if he plans to stay in Philadelphia, Harden said, "I'll be here." Offering Harden anything close to his max salary would mean wildly overpaying a one-time MVP in steep decline.

Harden was selected with the third overall pick in the 2009 NBA draft by the Oklahoma City Thunder. He recorded the fourth highest 3-point percentage in NBA history (.375) for a player under the age of 21 (minimum of 150 attempts) during the 2009–10 season.

Stay tuned.
