“はい, that’s correct,” Nash said. “I’ve talked to James, he wants to be here. He wants to be here long term as well, so I don’t think anything’s changed other than noise from the outside.

James wants to be here, we’re building with James and we think we have the best chance to win with James.

Harden has missed two games with a left hamstring injury and been the subject of trade rumors, including a possible deal to send him to Philadelphia for Ben Simmons. Nash said Harden’s hamstring is tightness, not a strain, and he has lost strength in the ligament.

“私たちのために, we just don’t want to take any chances,” Nash said. “We know last year we lost him for an extended period and we want to be conservative and make sure he resumes full strength so there isn’t an extended absence.

Harden has missed 10 games in his first full season with Brooklyn.

The Nets entered Sunday’s game having lost seven in a row, including a blowout loss at Utah on Friday night.
