Net worth: $165 million
James Harden plays guard for the Philadelphia 76ers, his fourth NBA team.
In 2017, Harden signed a four-year, $228 million contract with the Houston Rockets to take effect in the 2019-20 season. However, in early 2021, the Rockets traded him to the Brooklyn Nets. When the Nets failed to thrive with a “big three” of Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving and Harden, Brooklyn traded Harden to the Philadelphia 76ers in February 2022.
He holds a player option of $47.37 million with the 76ers for the 2022-23 season. He must opt in by June 30.
