Reporting w/ @ESPN_MacMahon: James Harden has recently indicated to Houston he'd be open to a trade to Philadelphia or other contenders. So far, no substantive talks with Sixers.

Daryl Morey, who took the Sixers GM job after a stint with the Rockets, has expressed interest in trading for Harden. Houston is not going to let their superstar go that easy though, as the Sixers would have to give up multiple pieces in order to acquire him.
Harden previously requested to be traded to the Brooklyn Nets to form a superteam with former Oklahoma City Thunder teammate Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving.
