James Harden is torn between staying with the Sixers or returning home to Houston, per report. His chances of winning a ring are much higher if he stays put but Houston has cap space for Harden to sign a massive deal, something Philly may not be able to do. (Shams Charania on Twitter)
Wherever Harden signs has big implications for either team. Philadelphia will look to bring in another star alongside Joel Embiid and Houston could be in playoff contention, albeit likely a lower seed. Houston is full of young talent and their fantasy values, not to mention their real life usage, would all take a hit if Harden comes to town. If Harden stays then things stay more or less status quo for their respective teams until free agency and the draft.
