Although James Harden's contract talks with the Philadelphia 76ers are taking longer than anticipated, a conclusion may be reached shortly.
Chris Haynes, an NBA insider, said that talks with Harden are "in a good place."
In an effort to provide the Sixers freedom in building a better squad, Harden is allegedly open to accepting a deal that is favorable to the franchise.
Harden was acquired by the Sixers from the Brooklyn Nets in a sensational trade last year.
They anticipated him to be a superstar, but he ended up playing second fiddle to Tyrese Maxey and Joel Embiid, both of whom are budding stars.
Resting during the off-season should aid Harden in regaining his touch.
