The president of Philadelphia 76ers always wants to take advantage of others in the transaction, so he has a bad reputation in this alliance.
Earlier, Keith Pompey, a reporter from Philadelphia Inquirer, revealed that the President of 76ers wanted to exchange Harris for Allen, mobley and a draft pick.
As a result, it is conceivable that the general manager of the Cavaliers refused, of course. I don’t know if he has been completely blacked out by the president of the 76 ers.
The President of 76ers watched the Summer League in Las Vegas and paid attention to the Houston Rockets’ game. He was deeply attracted by the performances of Amen Thompson and Cam Whitmore and wanted to get the No.4 show and No.20 show.
Amen Thompson is a real point guard. He not only has excellent physical fitness, but also has a first-class passing vision. He has a good defensive awareness and there is room for improvement in shooting. Not only some NBA scouts and netizens, but even teammate Whitmore said that seeing Amen Thompson play reminds people of Ben Simmons. Simmons, who works hard and has the ability to project, will be quite scary. No wonder the 76ers president wants Amen Thompson.
In the past few years, every year, there have been rookie rockets who stand up and say that they are the strongest in this year. Whitmore didn’t lose confidence in himself because he fell to the 20th place. Whitmore fought bravely in the summer league and finally won the MVP. His goal is the best rookie next season.
However, the reality is cruel. Whitmore will not only be impossible to start the Rockets in the new season, but even strive for a rotation quota.
So what kind of chips will the 76 ers president come up with to impress the rocket management?
Harden, the former rocket cornerstone.
"fansided" previously said that in addition to the Clippers, there are several teams interested in Harden. Si Tong, the general manager of the Rockets, is facing the pressure of performance and may consider making a deal with the 76ers. The American media put forward a trading plan: the Rockets sent Amen Thompson, Cam Whitmore, Kevin Porter Jr., Jeff Green and the first round of the Nets in 2024, and got Harden from the 76ers.
Will the rocket agree? Sbnation said the Rockets would reject the 1-for-5 deal.
Rockets reporter Jackson gatling revealed on the show that Si Tong originally wanted to sign Harden after the free agent market opened. If Fertitta decides to appoint vogel as head coach, he will welcome Harden back like Si Tong. Once Harden comes back, he will have the privilege, so some talented young players will be sent away as chips.
Earlier, Rocket reporter Kelly Apotheker also said that Harden can lead the Rockets into the playoffs, and young people such as Sengong and Ethan can be added to the first round to make a deal to strengthen the lineup.
Fertitta likes basketball and is proud of himself. In the past three years, he has kept a low profile and rarely made a sound. Now that the Rockets are over, Fertitta hopes that the Rockets can return to the playoffs next season, so he also tends to sign Harden at first.
What happened afterwards? Uduka wants to build a rocket team of his own, and he opposes signing privileged player Harden. Uduka said that Houston is full of talents and has a promising future. He is confident that these young players will grow up and win the championship in the future.
Fertitta felt very reasonable after listening to this, so vogel, the former leader, was eliminated, and Uduka Firewire took office, which caught ESPN celebrities off guard.
Uduka and Harden worked together, so the latter has a great hope of returning to the Rockets? This is really an illusion!
Uduka refused to look at it one dozen times and four times. He wanted the Rockets to play a team role and let young people grow up quickly. Uduka chose Van fleet, who didn’t occupy the ball and tried hard to defend, to guide Jay Green, and Tommy Tam, the villain, to guide Smith Jr. and Ethan.
Although Si Tong is the general manager of the Rockets, he is not as good as head coach Uduka. ESPN celebrity McMahon revealed that Uduka should be the most powerful person in the Rockets except boss Fertitta.
As long as Fertitta still trusts Uduka, the door of Houston will not be opened to Harden.
So will Harden’s No.13 jersey be affected when the Rockets retire?
I said before that Fertitta is a face-saving man, and he will not break his word to Harden in this matter. He will retire Harden’s No.13 jersey. Harden ranks in the top three in the history of the Rockets. He has made great contributions to the local community in Houston, and he definitely deserves such treatment.
