Could James Harden potentially follow Mike D’Antoni if he becomes the new Philadelphia 76ers head coach?

With both the Philadelphia 76ers and the Houston Rockets each being unceremoniously dumped out of the playoffs early, it was time for both franchises to make a change in regards to their respective head coaches.

Both Mike D’Antoni and Brett Brown are excellent coaches who have a long future coaching in the NBA going forward, but could one of the above coaches be replacing the other?

According to John Clark of NBC Sports Philadelphia that could very much be the case.

While Mike D’Antoni is a former NBA Coach of the Year candidate and would be a great acquisition for the 76ers, the interest in Harden and his affiliation with D’Antoni is very interesting for the 76ers.

Could the Philadelphia 76ers land D’Antoni and in turn put together a trade package to good for the Houston Rockets to turn down? If that trade were to exist, what would it look like?
