True to form, one of the most amazing gatekeepers in the NBA over the most recent 10 years - James Harden, consented to remain in Philadelphia.

Facial hair consented to a 2-year, $68.5 million agreement, with $33 million of that approaching next season and the rest being a choice he'll need to choose whether to practice the following summer.

Last month, Harden turned down the $47.4 million he might have gotten for the new mission to permit the Sixers to sign players to work on in their quest for a title.

Thus, the team strengthened with free agents PJ Tucker and Danwell House, and also managed to make a deal for utility guard DeAnthony Melton from Memphis.

The playmaker will soon turn 33 and was not particularly convincing last campaign after joining the team. He recorded 21 points and 10.5 assists in the regular season, and in the playoffs, where Philly reached the 2nd round, his numbers dropped to 18.6 points and 8.6 assists.
