Please stop me if you heard this one before: The Philadelphia 76ers are actively checking in with other teams to see if there’s any interest in trading Tobias Harris.
In a new Shams article on the Athletic, the 76ers have begun their “usual check-ins” with teams across the NBA ahead of the December 15th date for players who signed contracts in the offseason to be traded.
Tobias Harris Trade Rumors
76ers officials have begun their usual check-ins with teams across the league ahead of the Dec. 15 date for players who signed contracts in the offseason to be traded, when trade talks begin to intensify. Philadelphia’s Tobias Harris has come up in the 76ers’ conversations with clubs so far, league sources said.
In his 12th NBA season, Harris has adapted to a new role and has been regarded as a model teammate and leader for the 76ers. He’s averaged 14.7 points and 6.2 rebounds while attempting 12.1 field goals per game — the lowest since his 2015-16 season in Orlando.
Tobias Harris is the highest-paid player on the team and comes with a $37 million cap hit. Harris has one more year remaining on his 5-year $180 million contract that he signed before the 2019-2020 season. He’s set to make $37 million this year and $39 million next year.
Good luck moving that type of money.

Honestly though, why would you want to move Tobias Harris right now? I totally understand that he does not live up to a max-contract type of player for the 76ers or really, any other team in the NBA but that’s just the way the cookie crumbled when we initially gave him the contract.
There’s really no way that the 76ers will be able to get players back in a trade that would be a greater or equal value to what Tobias Harris can offer you already.
The 76ers are back in action tonight in South Philadelphia against Giannis and the Milwaukee Bucks.
