Fox Sports analyst Chris Broussard used a slur against people with developmental disabilities on Tuesday when discussing James Harden’s move to the Clippers.

Harden was traded to the franchise by the Sixers in the early hours of Tuesday and will join Kawhi Leonard, Paul George and Russell Westbrook in LA.

And while debating what role he would play on his new team, Broussard said something he would soon apologize for.

“Do you think he believes he’s going to play like he did in Houston? Broussard asked First Things First colleague Nick Wright.

“I think he’s not going to be able to play the way he wants to and he’s going to mope and it’s not going to work out well,” Wright replied.

Broussard then said, “Nick, is the man ready?”

The 55-year-old quickly adjusted his language to “developmentally disabled” before apologizing for his remark.

“I want to apologize for using that word,” he said. “I have a first cousin… he died a few months ago, a month or two ago he was developmentally disabled. “So I didn’t want to use that word.”

The comment left host Kevin Wildes with a stunned expression as he dramatically raised his eyebrow.

Mail Sport has contacted Fox Sports for comment.

As ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reports, Harden was traded to the Clippers in exchange for multiple draft picks (including two first-rounders) and experienced role players like Marcus Morris, Nic Batum and Robert Covington, as well as 22-year-old spark plug, Kenyon Martin Jr.

Meanwhile, in addition to Harden, the Clippers will also sign veteran forwards PJ Tucker and Filip Petrusev.
