And I think he also said that he wishes that Jimmy Butler were still his teammate.
Everyone has always wished this. Brian colangelo was paid by the nba to tank the sixers and he did.

No.

Watch the entire press conference.

I hate when people hyper focus on 1 liners from a 26 minute presser.

He was not ragging on Harden. He complimented Butler and said multiple times that he wasn’t the GM in Philly when asked what roster moves he wanted the team to make. His way of dodging that question was:

“I am not the GM, they could trade me or anyone else”.

He was not asking to be traded. But I do think he was lobbying for a PJ Tucker type player that really every good team should have.

I rely on articles. There is no way I am going to watch a 26 minute press conference. LOL.

And I realize he has never directly said he wants to leave. It's just that with all these comments, it makes you wonder whether he wishes he could.

That sucks. So what are we expecting Harden to do?
He’s gonna opt in for $47 million and try and rehabilitate his value for his next contract. He wouldn’t command much on the open market now and he would be saying good bye to ever competing for a ring (which I admit he may only give lip service to as a desire)

Maybe if Lakers want coach Rivers bad enough they will offer a trade of Westbrick for him

Then the Sixers can have 2 of the highest paid stiffs in the NBA with Hardly-in and Westbrick

Well, that is there problem though.

Most of the articles are slanted opinions based off of small quotes taken out of context.

Better yet. Trade Westbrook for Embiid. If they can time their injuries right, Embiid can play when AD is hurt and AD can play when Embiid is.
