With the start of the 2020-21 NBA regular season just days away, the James Harden trade saga is ongoing.
The Miami Heat, along with the Philadelphia 76ers, are reportedly the frontrunners to land the former regular season MVP.
The Miami Heat may have a great chance at landing Houston Rockets superstar James Harden, but the Heat aren’t willing to throw Duncan Robinson in any trade scenario.
The undrafted Robinson blossomed last year as he averaged 13.5 points a game while shooting lights out from 3-point range.
Even still, Harden is three-time scoring champion who is battled tested in the playoffs, despite his misfortunes to disappear in the postseason.
“I can only focus on right now, and for me, the best James Harden is making sure I’m in shape,” Harden told reporters Wednesday. “Like I said, I hadn’t even had an opportunity to play 5-on-5. Individual workouts, when you do individual basketball training, is great, but as every NBA player can agree, there’s nothing like 5-on-5 training, the physicality, making reads and things like that. Yesterday for my first time being out there, I felt good, and that’s exciting.”
