Harden Hopes For Extension Before End Of October

Oklahoma City (AP) -

 

NBA Sixth Man of the Year James Harden is holding out hope that he'll reach terms on a contract extension with the Oklahoma City Thunder by the end of the month.

Harden said Monday at the team's preseason media day that he's willing to sacrifice to make it work and he's focused on "hooping," and not on the contract negotiations.

General manager Sam Presti has repeatedly said the team would like to have Harden back but the reality of the situation includes a tough decision involving the salary cap and potential luxury tax payments for the small-market Thunder.

Harden says his agent, Rob Pelinka, and the Thunder both know how important it is to him to try and get a deal done.
