Mike D’Antoni Rumors
Alykhan Bijani: James Harden: “After the bubble, I just wanted to revaluate my career and the team and the direction that the organization it was going.” Said he reevaluated when Mike D’Antoni and Daryl Morey left. “I felt like we didn’t have a chance.”
Jackie MacMullan of ESPN and longtime sports writer Bob Ryan were guests on the latest episode of The Ringer’s Bill Simmons Podcast. The trio discussed possible Harden deals with Simmons, who said the Nets’ interest in “The Beard” waned when Mike D’Antoni suggested Brooklyn had enough on the current roster: “I heard that Brooklyn cooled of on Harden and one reason was D’Antoni, they were like ‘were good, lets keep what we have here, Harden presents some problems,’” Simmons said.
