Sport: Kevin Durant, James Harden back on good terms

NBA reportedly opens tampering investigation into 76ers in regards to Harden, Tucker, House

  NBA reportedly opens tampering investigation into 76ers in regards to Harden, Tucker, House The NBA needs to either seriously crack down on tampering or stop pretending it will. And good luck with actually cracking down on it. Dozens of new contracts were announced in the first hour of free agency alone. Maybe the 76ers will get their wrist slapped. That’s what the other bet teams are betting  — Milwaukee and Chicago got nailed for tampering a year ago and it cost them a late second-round pick (a spot in the draft where historically that player is never setting foot on an NBA court). Teams shrugged.

ClutchPoints: “From what I’m told, the two former teammates are back on good terms now despite [James] Harden forcing his way out of Brooklyn.” @ramonashelburne on the Sixers’ reported interest in trading for Kevin Durant.

Want to know who’s REALLY weary of the Kevin Durant situation? I bet it’s the people who do the NBA schedule.

I’m sure they’d love to know how this is going to shake out, so they can set the marquee matchups for prime TV windows.

Durant, Harden Celebrate With Travis Scott After His First Show Since Tragedy

  Durant, Harden Celebrate With Travis Scott After His First Show Since Tragedy The superstar ex-teammates reunited for the rap star’s London concert, Scott’s first solo show since the tragic deaths at his Astroworld festival. View the original article to see embedded media. Kevin Durant and James Harden have been a part of some eclectic Big 3s throughout their NBA careers, but the All-Stars’ latest team-up may be their most eccentric to date.The friends and former teammates linked up in London on Saturday for Travis Scott’s concert at O2 Arena, his first solo show since the tragic events of November’s Astroworld festival in Houston.

But odds are they won’t know before the release. – 4:10 PM Dave Early @DavidEarly

My read on the Durant-Sixers rumors is that KD would be excited, could be most fulfilling title run of his career, etc. And PHI is (of course) motivated.

But the smoke now is much more about BK/KD’s camp leveraging Phi to get a team with a bigger package like BOS to offer more. – 12:29 PM Derek Bodner @DerekBodnerNBA

Would I trade Tyrese Maxey for Kevin Durant?

  LeBron James has productive, informative meeting with Rob Pelinka, Darvin Ham James is finalizing a destination to host the team’s annual mi nicamp prior to training camp, with San Diego being the likely landing space over Las Vegas, sources said. He’s hoping to build a better rapport with teammates before entering the 2022-23 season. The meeting was deemed productive and informative. Pelinka made his feelings clear that he wants James to retire as a Laker and promised to provide him with every resource possible to compete for a championship each year he’s with the organization, sources said.

Coaches and execs around the @NBA are “livid” about Kevin Durant’s tactics with the @Brooklyn Nets. But would they take him on their team?

Kevin Durant holding out of training camp?

  Kevin Durant holding out of training camp? Brian Windhorst spent much of his Friday episode of “Brian Win dhorst & The Hoop Collective” podcast talking about Durant’s situation. Windhorst said he felt the Nets won the recent showdown between Durant and team owner Joe Tsai. But Windy doesn’t necessarily think that means all is over between the sides. In fact, Windhorst says he now could see a world where Durant holds out of training camp. “A week ago, if you had asked me, ‘Will Kevin Durant hold out of training camp if he is not traded?’ I would have been like, ‘eh, I can’t see it.’ Now I can see it.

Durant dialogue as it pertains to Philly is effectively “how good do you think Tyrese Maxey will be?”

I’m growing more convinced that KD will eventually find his way to Boston:

More on this storyline

“It’s pretty crazy. Things go fast,” Joerger said. “Before you even get to the [roster] changes, I think you get to the fact that James Harden, Joel Embiid, and other guys did not have a lot of time together. Our core has had two years together – Tyrese [Maxey], Tobias [Harris] – and Joel and Tobias have been together for a number of years, we get that. But to add a guy who has the ball as much as James does, especially with Joel, that’s only going to get better as more time is spent together.” -via NBA.com / August 10, 2022 The head of basketball ops from another club was similarly displeased. “Livid,” he said. “Livid. He and Kyrie (Irving) basically told Sean they were coming (as free agents in 2019), and Sean did pretty much everything they wanted after that. Signing DeAndre Jordan for four years? That’s something Kyrie and KD wanted. Getting James Harden? Then getting a guy who should be a perfect complement to them (Ben Simmons) when Harden wanted out? Sean did all that.” -via Heavy.com / August 9, 2022 Michael Scotto: Sources: James Harden has a 15 percent trade kicker included in his two-year, $68.64 million deal with the Philadelphia 76ers, @hoopshype has learned. Harden’s deal also contains a player option, as others have reported. -via Twitter @MikeAScotto / August 8, 2022 If and when Kevin Durant and Donovan Mitchell get traded, the space to make a Westbrook trade probably opens a little wider with the costs getting cleared. Lakers sources insist they have options beyond the ones that have been reported (Irving, Buddy Hield, Myles Turner and others). Time should better reveal those once the bigger moves get made. -via Los Angeles Times / August 12, 2022 “But when you take a step back and look at things, I think he wants to be there. And any problems that could ever happen with that relationship would probably have to come from him getting the idea that they’re not in on him. And right now I don’t see that from the Celtics. I think they know what they have in Jaylen — now and for the future — and they want to keep that going. -via Heavy.com / August 12, 2022 “But, like I said, it’s Kevin Durant, and you know Brooklyn is going to want to talk about Jaylen. Even if stuff about trade talks wasn’t getting leaked and reported, anyone with a brain would know that Jaylen’s name is going to come up at some point if they’re talking to Boston.” Scout: Jaylen Brown Is ‘Upper Echelon’ The opinion of Brown around the NBA is impressive — not just for what he is now, but for what the league’s evaluators expect. Echoing a common view, one scout said, “He’s GOT to fix his handle, and maybe that’s just about making better decisions in traffic. But he’s, what, 25? Look at how much he’s improved. He’s definitely not one of those guys who plateaus, who reaches a certain point and gets all satisfied.” -via Heavy.com / August 12, 2022
