Dwight Howard trying to recruit Harden to Taiwan

The drama between James Harden and the Philadelphia 76ers has Dwight Howard dreaming of a reunion with his former Houston Rockets teammate.

After Harden branded 76ers president of basketball operations Daryl Morey a “liar” and vowed to never play for him again, Howard shared an Instagram post Tuesday encouraging the 10-time NBA All-Star to join him in Taiwan’s T1 League.

Harden called out Morey at an Adidas promotional event in China on Monday, just a few days after it was reported that the 76ers had ended trade talks involving the star guard.

Howard and Harden were teammates in Houston for three seasons, helping the Rockets reach the Western Conference finals in 2015.

Howard signed with the Taiwan-based Leopards last year and was named an All-Star and the Most Valuable Import of the T1 League for the 2022-23 season while also making the All-Defensive first team.
