The offseason just got messier for the Philadelphia 76ers.

On the latest episode of Pickaxe and Roll, Ryan Blackburn discusses the latest situation between James Harden, Daryl Morey, and the Sixers featuring yet another trade demand. Who’s in the right in Philly? And does Harden deserve any benefit of the doubt after how he’s handled his previous two trade demands? Are the Los Angeles Clippers going to trade for Harden or not?

Then, Ryan focuses on Christian Braun, the energetic Denver Nuggets wing entering his second year in the 2023-24 NBA season. What will Christian Braun be for the Nuggets in the coming years? Can he replace sixth man Bruce Brown in the championship rotation immediately? Can Braun even become a starter in the coming years for the Nuggets? Ryan discusses Braun, various player comparisons like Trevor Ariza and Matisse Thybulle, and what Braun must do to succeed with the Nuggets. Expectations are high for the second year pro out of Kansas.
