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. Houston attorney Rusty Hardin, who will represent Harden in a 2016 lawsuit amended Tuesday to include Harden as a defendant, said he could not recall in recent memory such a case “that is based on nothing … with absolutely no evidence.” “I can tell you this: James flat out denies having anything to do with whatever happened to Moses. I’ve seen no evidence to support the fact he had anything to do with it,” Hardin said.
