Apparently, both Kevin Durant and James Harden are all good with each other.
As detailed by ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne, the two are now on good terms amid Harden’s dramatic departure from the Brooklyn Nets last season.
The 2017-2018 MVP forced his way out of Brooklyn and became a centerpiece of the blockbuster trade, as he was sent to the Philadelphia 76ers while the embattled Ben Simmons, Seth Curry and Andre Drummond landed in the Nets.
The fact that both Durant and Harden were spotted having some fun backstage of Travis Scott’s London concert only shows that both the all-time great players have already settled their differences.
For now, speculations are swirling on potential reunion between the two. The report of SNY’s Ian Begley suggests that there are “high-ranking members” of the 76ers organization who “felt strongly” that their brass needs to open up a trade discussion to acquire Durant. As such, the two-time Finals MVP sees Philly as a “welcome landing spot” which will cater his needs after expressing his desire to be traded by the Nets.
It remains yet to be seen the next events to come, but if ever the Sixers managed to pull it off without giving much assets, they will be an instant championship favorite entering the upcoming season.
