Tobias Harris responds to 76ers fans trade package idea to land Kevin Durant on Instagram
Tobias Harris got married last weekend and of course, there were several 76ers players in attendance. The team’s social accounts posted a bunch of pictures of the wedding and Sixers fans were quick to respond about who showed up for Harris’ big night.

Over the past week, the main story in the NBA world has been Kevin Durant and the fact that he wants nothing to do with the Brooklyn Nets anymore. The most recent reports indicated that Durant wanted to play next year as a member of the Boston Celtics or Philadelphia 76ers.
That of course, sent Sixers social media into an absolute frenzy. The real hoopers know that landing KD, even at the expense of the young Tyrese Maxey, is the best possible move to get the 76ers one step closer to winning the NBA finals.
That brings us over to Instagram, where the 76ers posted a picture of Matisse Thybulle, Georges Niang, Tobias Harris, and Tyrese Maxey from the wedding. An Instagram user was quick to point out that it was a perfect trade package to get Durant to Philadelphia.
Harris then responded to that user with countless laughing emojis.

Sure, the comment itself was funny but Tobias Harris is definitely self-aware enough to realize that a trade package of him, Thybulle, Niang, and yes, Tyrese Maxey would be a good starting point for the 76ers to land Kevin Durant.
It’s also something that Daryl Morey and the Sixers organization should strongly consider.

I sure hope Morey passes this suggestion by. Trading relatively durable and developing youthful and mid-career stars and multiple first round draft picks for one aging, fragile and temperamental superstar is a good way to doom a franchise. Team chemistry and continuity is undervalued.
