Rockets star James Harden’s attorney Wednesday denied allegations that Harden was involved in a 2016 nightclub attack on Moses Malone Jr. and suggested that a lawsuit filed this week against Harden was motivated by money.

I’ve seen no evidence to support the fact he had anything to do with it,” Hardin said.
