The Philadelphia 76ers are now headed into the offseason following yet another second-round exit from the playoffs. The Sixers made a big deal at the deadline to acquire star guard James Harden and have him team up with Joel Embiid, but the deal didn’t bear the fruit that they were hoping for.

Harden put up solid numbers in Philadelphia averaging 21 points and 10 assists in 21 regular-season games after the trade, but the numbers then dropped in the playoffs. He averaged 18.6 points and 8.6 assists while shooting just 40.5% from the floor ad 36.8% from deep.

The question now becomes whether the Sixers give Harden the supermax contract he will be looking for in the 2023 offseason. The future Hall of Famer will likely exercise his player option for the 2022-23 season which is worth $47 million, but after that, then the Sixers will have to make a decision from there.
