On the eve of free agency, the Sixers got some big news. During this episode of the Sixer Sense Podcast, we dive into the numerous player free agent decisions and team trade offers that are imminent, including one that has a major impact on the 76ers. We start with the news related to James Harden‘s player option in the final year of his contract.
The Sixer Sense: Episode 199
According to Adrian Wojnarowski, James Harden has declined his $47.3 million option to become a free agent. We explore the reasons behind his decision and the immediate impact it has on the team’s ability to sign more complementary players. Will this ultimately lead to P.J. Tucker signing with the Sixers? What about Eric Gordon?
The podcast then shifts to another big name that’s been rumored to be connected to the Sixers. Bradley Beal was reported to have declined his option, per Wojnarowski, and decided to become a free agent. We debate whether or not he will still re-sign with the Washington Wizards or try and make his way to a winning team like the Sixers.
After that topic, we discuss a number of other free agent decisions and team options that are associated with some key players around the league. The podcast explores the impact of a trade between Atlanta and San Antonio that sends Dejounte Murray to the Hawks. We also bring up free agent situations that involve Bobby Portis, Donte DiVincenzo, and Lou Dort. Other trades are discussed involving the Wizards, Pistons, Nuggets, and Knicks.
