The Philadelphia 76ers are upping their pursuit of Houston Rockets All-Star guard James Harden and the current trade package could feature All-Star Ben Simmons and rookie guard Tyrese Maxey, Marc Stein of The New York Times reported Wednesday afternoon. The Rockets are reportedly going to sit Harden out while they pursue a deal for the disgruntled guard. Harden became increasingly fed up after the Rockets’ loss to the Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday night.
