Sixers Rumors: Patrick Beverley hints at Rockets reunion with James Harden
If you clicked on this article, you are no stranger to the NBA offseason and all the speculation and rumors that come with it.
No offseason compares to the NBA’s with all the player movement and, more specifically, the superstar movement. One such rumor that has gained traction recently is the possibility of James Harden returning to the Houston Rockets.
A former teammate of Harden, Patrick Beverly, expressed his belief in a high chance of reuniting with Harden in Houston. Beverly mentions that Houston was one of his desired destinations when he was traded from the Lakers.

As wild as a Harden and Beverly reunion in Houston sounds, it’s essential to at least consider these speculations could be a leverage play by the players and their agents.
I’m not saying Harden’s reported interest in returning to Houston is all a ploy, but it ultimately depends on the Rockets’ willingness to engage in this. The Rockets franchise appears to be in a total rebuild, so it would undoubtedly raise some question marks about its mentality.
There’s a lot of reunion talk here, and as Sixers fans, we should all hope Daryl Morey doesn’t fall for any of these tactics and prioritize the Sixer’s title chances rather than trying to resurrect the Houston Rockets of old.
