Rafael Stone: “We really wanted to add veteran players who still fit our timeline and knew how to win. And we think we accomplish that.”
The “timeline” part of this quote is interesting to me because it clearly alludes to choosing FVV over Harden.

More on this storyline

Dave McMenamin: “As of right now, with certainly no momentum appearing on a deal to the Los Angeles Clippers. And Philadelphia obviously still needing what he does without finding a replacement for him. It looks like there’s a pathway for him to come back to the Sixers next year.” -via RealGM / July 11, 2023
Beverley had a message for Harden for why he should remain a Sixer. “I love him,” Beverley said. “James, I love you, bro. Stay. … I’m very familiar with James. And I’m excited. I’m excited to get it going. He knows I’m here. So we’ll see.” -via The Philadelphia Inquirer / July 10, 2023
