James Harden has a $47.3 million player option for the 2022-23 season but could also sign a new five-year contract with the Brooklyn Nets as an unrestricted free agent to make even more money.

However, the 2018 MVP is not in any rush to sign a new deal: "Over the course of my career, I've never been a free agent before, so I've always just been loyal and just signing contract extensions. I just want to take my time with it," Harden told Malika Andrews of ESPN.

"It's going to be very difficult to leave here, or even to leave Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving, but I think this season I just want to focus on winning the championship, and everything else will work itself out," Harden said.

During media day, Harden told reporters that he wanted to stay in Brooklyn for the rest of his career.

He averaged 24.6 points, 10.8 assists, and 7.9 rebounds over 36.6 minutes in 44 regular-season games last season.
