Last Monday (14), through social networks, James Harden published a video in which he criticized the attitude of Daryl Morey, manager of his current Philadelphia 76ers team, stating that the manager was a liar and that he had no intention of continuing on the US team.
“Daryl Morey is a liar and I will never be a part of an organization that he is a part of. I’ll say it again: Daryl Morey is a liar and I will never be part of an organization he is a part of”, said the player in a video recorded in China and posted on the internet.
Apparently, when he renewed his contract for another year at the Philadelphia 76ers, James Harden had asked the manager of his current team to trade him to the Los Angeles Clippers, during the free agency period. However, so far, Daryl Morey has not made the request.
In addition, because they had known each other for a long time while they were at the Houston Rockets, the athlete and the manager had an open and pleasant communication, causing James Harden to leave his former team and sign with the Philadelphia 76ers.
However, the player, in the last contract renewal, was not satisfied with the treatment of the team and especially with Daryl Morey. In last season’s deal, James Harden needed to lower his salary so that new athletes could join the Philadelphia 76ers and thus recover the team’s performance. So far, none of those involved have responded to the news.
