Report: Multiple teams interested in acquiring Tobias Harris with two teams making ‘serious offers’ already
According to reports, the Philadelphia 76ers are actively looking to trade Tobias Harris.
Harris is entering the final season of a 5-year, $180 million contract and is scheduled to make $39.2 million in 2023-24.According to Keith Pompey from The Inky, numerous teams have expressed interested in acquiring Tobias Harris over the past few weeks.
The Indiana Pacers and Phoenix Suns have reportedly made “serious offers” to land Harris this summer. The Utah Jazz, Dallas Mavericks, Detroit Pistons, and Cleveland Cavaliers were all mentioned as teams to have interest in Harris as well.
Much like every trade or report that comes out involving a potential Sixers’ trade, Daryl Morey and company aren’t willing to part ways with Harris unless the they would be getting something of greater or equal value in return.
The always heavily criticized Harris has averaged 17.7 points, 6.6 rebounds, and 3.1 assists per game during his Sixers career while shooting 48.8 percent from the floor.
Does it make sense to trade Tobias Harris?
Personally, I don’t see why the Sixers would try to move Harris this year. For once, I just want this organization to slow down and think about what they are doing. Everything always seems rushed and moves are constantly made in effort to “win now”. The problem, is that “winning now” never seems to actually work for the Sixers.
Not to mention, the move doesn’t really make sense from a money perspective. The Sixers could clear Tobias Harris when his contract expires and have much more money to work with when bringing in another star player to pair with Joel Embiid and Tyrese Maxey after this season.
Even then, the frustration has completely boiled over with the Sixers. This fanbase is rightfully exhausted. And when you’re talking about Harris returning for another year with reports that James Harden will be re-signing with the team on another contract, the thought of the Sixers’ selling this fanbase on “running it back” seems absolutely ridiculous.
If anything, I hope the Sixers part ways with Harris and don’t re-sign James Harden.
Give the fanbase an entire new team around Maxey and Embiid and ignite some interest heading into next season.
Whatever Morey and the organization thinks they are doing to help this basketball team is certainly not working. Keeping Harris and Harden in Philly while only adding a few bench pieces will be a tough sell to this fanbase heading into next year.
