The nets didn’t take advantage of the game-changing trade between Harden and Simmons

The deal for James Harden, which fans had been waiting for, ended up with the Sixers.Harden and Simmons swap teams, and the trade is destined to change the existing NBA landscape, the impact on the Eastern Conference is relatively large, but the Nets are not the beneficiary of the trade, did not take any advantage of the trade, it has to say that the Sixers are rarely shrewd.In the Harden deal, the 76ers are giving away Simmons, Seth Curry, Andre Drummond, the unprotected 2022 first-round pick, and the protected 2027 first-round pick from Brooklyn for Harden and Paul Millsap.It could even end up being two secondary rounds and some cash not compensated, if so, then the Nets have failed.Harden changed teams for the second straight season, and the Nets were just one of them, acquiring harden’s rights for just over a season.Harden was brought to the Nets in a four-way trade that cost them dearly, not to mention the draft, in a deal that gave up nearly all of the nets’ previous playoff success.When you think about it, the Nets overdraft their future by giving away their top picks in Allen, Le Velle, Tayshaun Prince and Kurutz, as well as their unprotected first-round picks in 2022, 204 and 2026 and their unprotected picks in 2021, 2023, 2025 and 2027 in swaps.But the all-or-nothing trade ended badly, and without Harden, the Nets might be a championship-caliber team by now.The Nets played the all-or-nothing role in harden’s trade last time, and have been the passive party to harden’s trade this season.Harden is determined to leave the Nets, and even if he doesn’t leave this season, he can leave as a free agent next season and the Nets will get nothing. Even if he leaves in a sign-and-trade, the Nets will get only a fraction of the amount of money they can get, so there will be a trade this season.But the question for fans is, will Harden be able to change the league today?This is a good question, Harden’s mentality is really bad now, can’t play a losing game, once the loss is easy to explode mentality, if it comes to the playoffs, won’t it be easier to give up the game, although Embiid has a competitive heart, but can affect Harden is still uncertain.
