An ESPN report:
James Harden’s uncertain future becomes the focus again, as it’s basically been in Loud City from the moment big man Serge Ibaka agreed to a four-year deal worth nearly $50 million in mid-August.
Thunder players, by all accounts, have blocked the chatter out pretty well leading up to the 11:59 p.m. ET Oct. 31 deadline for OKC and Harden to reach terms on a contract extension that would prevent the NBA’s reigning Sixth Man Award winner from becoming a restricted free agent on July 1.
Honestly, he didn’t play like the 6th man in the NBA Finals, but Harden has to remember the salary cap. Who knows what will happen.
