76ers Don’t Want To Pay James Harden Max Contract

Per ESPN’s Brian Windhorst, the 76ers have no interest in offering James Harden a max contract. There is no real motivation to pay him the max, which is why the organization asked him to take a pay cut.

“The 76ers have not shown an appetite to pay Harden the max; that’s why they asked him to take a pay cut last year,” Windhorst reported. “The Sixers are not really motivated to pay him that max salary if they don’t think anybody else is going to do it.”

Harden is eligible to sign a four-year deal with the 76ers for over $210 million, whereas another team could only offer him $201.7 million over four years. Also, he is only able to sign a four-year deal due to the Over-38 rule.

James Harden is a top guard in this summer’s free agency.
