James Harden’s request to trade before the start of the season had become one of the biggest stories of recent months in the NBA. During this period, the name of the star player was sometimes mentioned with teams such as the Milwaukee Bucks, Toronto Raptors, and Boston Celtics, but the two teams that came to the fore were the Philadelphia 76ers and the Brooklyn Nets.
