ANDHe is a shooting guard of 1.96 meters and 32 years old has turned down 15 million dollars because I gave up the ‘player option’ that I had at the end of the season, for which I would have renewed one more year for 47 millionand has extended his contract with Philadelphia for two years and 67 million dollarsaccording to TheAthletic.

After starting the season with the Nets, in early 2022 Harden arrived at the Pennsylvania franchise in a transfer in which they were involved Ben Simmons, Seth Curry and Andre Drummondplus two first-round draft picks.

After playing 21 games under Doc Rivers, he has managed to have 21.0 points, 10.5 assists and 7.1 rebounds on average. Of course, the 22 points he has scored on average this season between Brooklyn and Philadelphia are his worst scoring numbers in 10 years. Since I arrived Harden leads the NBA in games with more than 10, 20, 30, 40, 50 and 60 points.

With this renewal of the ‘Beard’, the franchise’s wage bill amounts to 152 million, exceeding the cap of 123 and 150 that mark the red line. Having exceeded that figure, the Sixers will have to pay the luxury tax. Currently Tobias Harris is the player with the highest salary since collecting 37.6 million the following season. The other star that forms the ‘Big Two’, Joel Embidwin 33 and Harden occupy the third place of the players who earn the most money.
