Former Philadelphia 76ers player James Harden has gotten the trade he asked for in the summer.
According to ESPN, the player forced his way out of his third team when the Los Angeles Clippers acquired Harden from the 76ers. The trade was announced early Tuesday by basketball insider Adrian Wojnarowski.

The 76ers will waive guard Danny Green to make room for the newly acquired players, sources said.
Harden, who is affectionately referred to as “The Beard,” is said to be “ecstatic” about the move that has been anticipated since he demanded a trade. There is a possibility that he will be with his new teammates in Los Angeles at Tuesday night’s Clippers home game against the Orlando Magic.
