Harden takes $15m paycut to allow 76ers to build a contender

James Harden is taking a $15 million paycut for next season to allow Philadelphia to bolster their roster — with the sole focus on making a championship run in 2023. 

Harden opted out of his $47m player option and now plans to sign a new two-year deal with a player option in Year Two.

Everyone around Harden has understood the focus on his workout regimen this offseason and a championship goal for 2022-23. 

His close relationships with those around the organisation, including Michael Rubin and front office chief Daryl Morey, played a major role in trust between the two sides, reports The Athletic‘s Shams Charania.
