(NEW YORK) Happy Thursday, fellow New Yorkers! Today is Feb. 10 and welcome back to another edition of the New York City Daily Roundup — the best way to catch the latest news from around the Big Apple.

It's a wonderful day to head outdoors, as temperatures are in the low 50s, with a high of 53°F expected on Thursday. The sun will fill the skies through 5:24 p.m. as temperatures will then drop into the mid-to-low 40s.

As for the news, here's what you need to know this Thursday:

1.) James Harden fears public backlash amid Philadelphia trade rumors

Brooklyn Nets guard James Harden has been linked to the Philadelphia 76ers as trade rumors circle around before the 3 p.m. trade deadline, but he has yet to formally request the trade in fears of being criticized for wanting out of two franchises in consecutive seasons, sources told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

The Nets have lost nine games in a row, and Harden has been sidelined with injuries as well. While the 76ers and Nets have not been officially linked, there may still be room for 76ers president of basketball operations, Daryl Morey, to negotiate with Nets general manager Sean Marks on a Harden deal.

2.) 'The Soul of Jazz' exhibit to open Friday

Disney's "The Soul of Jazz: An American Adventure" will be making its Harlem debut on Friday, according to ABC 7 NY. The exhibition will be on display at the National Jazz Museum this Black History Month.

"Coming to Harlem is really important to us," Walt Disney Imagineering President Barbara Bouza said. "We had the exhibit at Epcot at Walt Disney World, and not every guest at this time can get to the park. So the idea is to be able to come right in the community."

"We want every child here in Harlem, here in New York City, anywhere in any community we go, to be able to walk in and say, 'Wow, I can see that,'" Bouza said.

"Saturday Night Live" star Pete Davidson will be leaving his native borough of Staten Island for Brooklyn, he announced during an interview with NBCLX's Tabitha Lipkin.

“I am moving to Brooklyn," Davidson said. "I am very excited. I love Staten Island, but it takes too long to get over the bridge."

Despite the quick announcement, sources told the New York Post the move has yet to be finalized.

“Pete is still debating whether or not to take the Brooklyn pad,” they told The Post. “The issue is security. This place does not have a doorman. He is also considering Chelsea. But there have been security issues, even [more] so after Kanye’s comments. So many people are even showing up to his mom’s house.”
