The Sixer Sense podcast is back with the news of a former Philadelphia 76er shooting guard, and 3-time NBA champion re-signing with the team in free agency. Danny Green is back on a one-year, non-guaranteed, veteran minimum contract. This seems like a relatively low-risk signing for the Sixers, but will Green be on the roster come opening day? Lucas Johnson and Jonathan Geib debate.

More big Sixers news was the ESPN report by Ramona Shelburne which provided alleged previously unknown details surrounding the rift between James Harden and the franchise. The report presents Harden as sensitive and impulsive and there is a clear picture painted of how the Sixers and Harden went from a potential Championship contending team with Harden at the helm to the disgruntled star demanding a trade out of Philly. It is fair to say Harden did not approve of Shelburne’s reporting.

Lucas and Jonathan discuss details of the report ranging from Harden “pouting” over feeling snubbed from the All-Star game to his impatience with the Sixers’ timeline of offering him a contract. Was it possible for this situation to have been avoided or at least tempered with improved communication between Harden and the Sixers? And what impact does this report have on the end result of the Harden and Sixers sage?

The podcast closes out with the news of former Philadelphia 76er forward, Christian Wood, signing with the Los Angeles Lakers. Wood was linked to the Lakers early on in free agency, however, the big man remained unsigned deep into the offseason. How does Wood fit into the Lakers roster and is this a good home for him? If Wood does not last with the Lakers, is it possible this is the end of his career in the NBA? Lucas and Jonathan disagree on this question. Give the podcast a listen below to hear their thoughts!
