4. Tobias Harris
The 76ers are in a state of flux because of James Harden’s trade request. Will president of basketball operations Daryl Morey grant the ten-time All-Star’s wish? All signs point to Philadelphia getting a less-than-stellar package in return, so what does that mean for the state of their roster?
The Sixers could be looking for a point guard to pair with Joel Embiid as Golden State attempts to add size. Tobias Harris is set to make $39.2 million in the final year of his contract, which is $9.2 million more than CP3.
This could interest the Dubs because it is an expiring deal. They would have the option to renegotiate at a lower number or let Harris walk in free agency. The 31-year-old is not getting another max contract, but how much less will he take?
In his four and a half years in Philadelphia, Harris averaged 17.7 points, 6.6 rebounds, 3.1 assists, and 0.8 steals in 33.8 minutes per game. Those are not All-Star numbers, but they are impactful as a third or fourth option. The 6’8 forward can defend multiple positions and scores efficiently. He makes his team better and would have zero issues fitting in with the Golden State Warriors if things with Chris Paul are not working.
