As new contracts are getting signed and top players pick up or decline options, 76ers guard James Harden gave up his $47M option for one year, giving the club some extra money to bring in free agents.

That will make the roster stronger as Harden plays the last few seasons of his HOF NBA career,

The Beard has earned $272M in his playing career to date — and he has re-upped in Philly for approximately $32 million a year for the next two. But he has not lifted the Larry O’Brien trophy yet, a goal he’s clearly stated is left in his final years as a player.

This flexibility has given the Sixers the money to sign two key free agents, PJ Tucker for $10M a year and swingman Danuel House Jr. on a two year $8.5M deal.

These additions are just what Sixers boss man Daryl Morey needed to bolster a roster aiming at the NBA championship the upcoming season.

The unselfishness of Harden made those two big moves possible.
