During his media session with Philadelphia 76ers reporters on Tuesday, new Sixers head coach Doc Rivers spoke about the James Harden trade rumors.

It came out Tuesday that Harden is now more open to a Sixers trade because Nets trade talks aren't going anywhere. Rivers, who has been around the NBA for a while, addressed these latest rumors:

“You’re not hearing them from us. So as long as you’re not hearing them from us, you should be very comfortable,” Rivers told Sixers reporters, via ESPN.

“We like our team, man. I’ll tell you: that team I just watched out there is pretty special. And so those rumors, none are coming from us.”

The Sixers' new president of basketball operations is Daryl Morey, who used to run the Rockets. Since Morey and James Harden had a close relationship in Houston, many believe the new exec won't be afraid to trade Ben Simmons or Joel Embiid to the Rockets to acquire Harden, who has led the NBA in scoring the past three seasons.

Doc Rivers, who replaced Brett Brown as the Sixers' head coach, likes what he has in Simmons and Embiid, two of the best players in the NBA. Most pundits believe Rivers and Morey want to see Simmons and Embiid play together during the 2020-21 season before any drastic moves are made.

The Sixers got swept by the Boston Celtics in the first round of the 2020 playoffs at Walt Disney World. Aside from firing Brown and hiring Rivers and Morey, Philly traded Al Horford, acquired Danny Green and Seth Curry, and signed Dwight Howard in free agency.
