This week on The Atlantic Files:

While most of the NBA was quiet and peacefully enjoying their off-season, the Philadelphia 76ers made another personnel signing and brought in the services of Daryl Morey. This comes just about two weeks after the new of Morey stepping down. So could that mean that James Harden will follow him?

If you’ve listened to the Atlantic Files before, then you’ve heard that the Sixers have needed to make front office changes for a long time now. They have their coach in Doc Rivers, they made some lesser-known changes with Peter Dinwiddie, and now they have a new President of Basketball Operations.

James Harden, of course, was the next name to start popping up after this news broke. Stephen A. Smith, amongst others, have kicked around the idea of the Sixers trading for Harden and trying to compete for a ring with a duo of either Harden and Ben Simmons or Harden and Joel Embiid.

This brings us to the question of which young start should they keep? Let’s say Morey does influence Elton Brand and the Sixers to move on from one, should it be Simmons or Embiid?

Finally, the NBA proposed a start date for the new season. The NBPA wasn’t exactly on board with the decision though. A lot of star players and teams who were in the bubble believed that it was too early and would sit out a month if that were to happen.

All of that and more on the latest episode below!

Being from the suburbs of Philadelphia, it was hard not to become a Sixers fan during Allen Iverson's prime. Other than just the Sixers, I enjoy watching all forms and levels of basketball, especially the WNBA. Outside of basketball, I've been playing and coaching volleyball for most of my life. Also, after graduating from the University of Pittsburgh, I became a Software Developer by day, while writing and hosting podcasts by night.
