James Harden, a former NBA MVP, has signed a new deal with the Philadelphia 76ers for two years and announced his NBA career. The terms of the agreement were unveiled as per team regulations, but league insiders previously reported that the contract is worth $68.6 million.

Harden said in a statement that this is where I want to be. This is where I want to win, and I think we have the tools to meet my aim. I'm looking forward to building on my experience with the 76ers this season. The team and the fans have helped me feel at ease here in Philadelphia.

Daryl Morey, the 76ers' president of basketball operations and the guy who acquired Harden in a trade with the Brooklyn Nets midway through the 2021-2022 season, spoke glowingly of James, the player he formed a close connection with during Moreys time as General Manager of the Houston Rockets.

Morey stated that James Harden is one of the greatest NBA players and that he is a future Hall of Famer. We are so grateful that he will continue his quest to win an NBA championship here in Philadelphia. He is one of the best scorers and passers to ever play, and his knowledge of the game allows him to analyse defenses and make everyone around him better.

While the 76ers lost in the NBA Playoffs this past season, Harden was still one of the league's most productive players. In his 65 games with the Brooklyn Nets and 76ers, Harden averaged 22.0 points, 7.7 rebounds, 10.3 assists, and 1.3 steals.
