Expected Departure: Sixers' Tobias Harris in Free Agency

Published April 19, 2024 at 12:09

Several NBA executives anticipate Tobias Harris's departure from the 76ers this offseason. While the Detroit Pistons may be a potential destination, other teams are also eyeing the versatile power forward, who boasts career averages of 16.3 points and 6.2 rebounds.

Harris and the Sixers, seeded No. 7 in the Eastern Conference, are set to meet the New York Knicks in the playoffs' opening round.

''The power forward's tenure with the 76ers is expected to end once their postseason run concludes,'' Pompey wrote. ''Several NBA executives believe there's a chance he'll land with the Detroit Pistons in free agency. But there are several other teams interested in the 13th-year veteran with career averages of 16.3 points and 6.2 rebounds.''

Philadelphia has been an uneasy environment for him, especially considering the potential fallout if they exit the playoffs early. At 31, Harris put up solid numbers this season, averaging 17.2 points, 6.5 rebounds, and 3.1 assists in 70 games. He's had stints with the Bucks, Magic, and Clippers before his sixth season with the Sixers.

Despite uncertainties, there's a glimmer of hope for the Sixers. Following a narrow 105-104 victory over the Miami Heat in Wednesday's NBA Play-In Tournament, they clinched the seventh seed in the East. Their next challenge: the New York Knicks, in a best-of-seven series starting Saturday at Madison Square Garden (6 p.m., ESPN).
