The Philadelphia 76ers have been trusting the process for some time now, and it still hasn’t gotten them to the NBA Finals as of yet.
After losing to the Boston Celtics in round 1 in 2020, the team fired head coach Brett Brown after seven seasons with the franchise. Former Rockets coach Mike D’Antoni has been heavily rumored to possibly be making his way to Philly, but it appears the team has a much bigger reason than his coaching tactics.
The Sixers believe if they hired D’Antoni, he could then persuade Rockets superstar James Harden to leave Houston for Philadelphia in a monster trade.
“I’m hearing one of the reasons along with coaching that Sixers have a lot of interest in Mike D’Antoni is feeling with some in organization that he could help lure James Harden to Philly,” said John Clark of NBC Sports Philadelphia.
The Rockets may be looking to shake things up after losing 4-straight games to the Lakers in round 2.
