Doc Rivers says the plan is for at least two of James Harden, Joel Embiid, Tobias Harris and Tyrese Maxey to be out on the court at all times, to ensure Philadelphia has consistent offensive threats out there at all times. – 6:54 PM

Based on conversations with Brooklyn figures and those close to Durant, it’s clear the Harden blockbuster trade for Ben Simmons wouldn’t have occurred without Durant’s blessing. As more and more Nets personnel faced the reality approaching the trade deadline that Harden wanted out, Durant’s approval mattered more than anyone else’s. “KD didn’t want to get rid of James,” one person familiar with the two superstars said. “But he knew it was over.” -via Bleacher Report / February 15, 2022
