One of the hottest NBA betting prop offerings available right now heading into the new year will be related to star James Harden and the possibility he'll be returning to the Houston Rockets.

Harden and the Rockets may indeed be interested in a reunion.

BetOnline has now opened odds on whether or not Harden will be on the Sixers roster at the outset of next season, and if not, which team he'll be on.


Adrian Wojnarowski, Senior NBA Insider for ESPN writes:

Harden and his inner circle have been openly weighing Houston in recent months, sources said, a remarkable possibility given that he requested and received a trade out of the franchise less than two years ago.  His future with the 76ers remains a fluid proposition, one that has been buoyed with eight straight victories.

But Wojnarowski also points out that the Sixers gave up significant assets to acquire Harden and he fully anticipates that team will make it top priority to keep the NBA star.

Indeed, the oddsmakers at BetOnline agree.  While Houston is a 2-1 favorite to land Harden should he move on from Philadelphia, the odds of Harden staying with the Sixers are still -180.
