He is also a 10-time NBA All-Star.
Harden has recently got into a feud with Darryl Morey, President of Basketball Operations of the Philadelphia 76ers. Morey brought Harden to the Houston Rockets from the Oklahoma City Thunder, and then to the Philadelphia 76ers. But after Harden’s talks with LA Clippers stalled, he seems to have blamed Morey for it and has announced that he will never work with Morey or any organisation that he is associated with, as per ESPN.
James Harden’s salary and income
Harden rose to the top with his game when he moved from the Oklahoma City Thunder to the Houston Rockets. He then moved to the Brooklyn Nets in 2021 and was then traded to the Philadelphia 76ers, his current team.
Harden’s salary per year was nearly $14.7 million initially as an NBA player. However, this amount increased to $40 million as he became a central player in his team Rockets. Later, this sum increased to about $40 million as he became a more central player for the team. In 2017, Harden signed a new extension with the Rockets, which made him one of the richest players in NBA history. The four-year extension was reportedly worth $228 million, paying him an average of $47 million per year, as per Celebrity Net Worth.
In 2021, which was the fourth year of his contract, Harden made about $530,000 per game and by the end of his contract, his salary and endorsement earnings combined would have been over $560 million. When Harden was traded to the 76ers, he signed a two-year, $68.64 million deal and in June 2023, he picked up his $35.6 million player option as well. Thus, in his 14-year-long NBA career, he has made over $301.5 million from salary alone.
