Tobias Harris scattered 16 points, eight rebounds, two threes and one block across 26 minutes in Friday's win over the Hornets.
Harris was his usual efficient self providing scoring with complementary rebounds and threes. It will be interesting to see if he can find a way to add more defense to his statistical mix this season as it was mentioned as a point of emphasis for him this summer.

Tobias Harris is determined to show that he is much more than a scoring option after working on his defense during the summer.
“It’s been a huge emphasis for me this summer, lateral quickness, being able to stay lower longer,” Harris said during Monday’s media day at the team’s practice facility in Camden. Harris did average 7.9 rebounds last year but his steals and blocks numbers have always been pedestrian. Defense seems to be a priority in Philadelphia this year and an uptick in the defensive numbers would boost Harris’ fantasy value but for now we can only count on him to deliver his regular scoring with solid percentages.

The Sixers have announced the re-signing of Tobias Harris.
Harris re-ups with Philly on a five-year, $180 million deal. He delivered top-40 value last season despite a huge shift in being traded from the Clippers to the Sixers, where he saw his usage dip a shade from 23.5 to 21.3. With Jimmy Butler gone and replaced by two players who won't need the ball as much in Al Horford and Josh Richardson, we could see Harris get a little closer to his Clippers numbers next season — not that there was really a huge difference after the trade.

Shams Charania reports that Tobias Harris plans to stay with the Sixers and intends to sign a five-year, $180 million deal.
Harris has been a priority for the Sixers coming into the opening of free agency and it looks like they've agreed on a major deal for the roto-friendly forward. His value took a hit when he joined the Sixers last season, but with Jimmy Butler's future still currently up in the air, Harris might have some bounce-back appeal.

Tobias Harris will meet with the 76ers as soon as free agency begins and is seeking a max deal according to David Aldridge of The Athletic.
The 76ers will get the first crack at Harris while Jimmy Butler will be in Miami. There appears to be an impetus for the Sixers to walk away with at least one of their two free agents that they acquired last season, and it may come at the price of max money for Harris. We will update this situation as it develops.

The Nets, should they fail to sign Kevin Durant, have been keeping an eye on both Tobias Harris and Jimmy Butler, per SNY's Ian Begley.
Brooklyn is expected to come to a quick agreement with Kyrie Irving and is hoping to pair him with a second max-level player. Butler is believed to be going to the highest bidder, but the sign-and-trade market has opened up additional possibilities. Whether either he or Harris is intrigued enough by Brooklyn's situation could be the determining factor, as both players will have no shortage of suitors, all likely checking in with similar offers.

The Mavs plan to submit an offer for Tobias Harris, though it is expected to be for less than the max according to Brad Townsend of the Dallas News.
Townsend adds that the Mavs expect Philly to "back up the truck" for Harris, so it seems as though they know they won't be the highest bidder. Dallas lost two of their free agent targets in Kemba Walker and Nikola Mirotic, but most of their big board contains second and third-tier free agents that will complement their young core rather than high-priced foundational pieces. Harris would be a nice blend of those two approaches if Dallas could swing it.

The Clippers, Mavs, Nets, Nuggets, Wolves, Kings, Grizzlies and Pelicans are expected to be interested in Tobias Harris once free agency opens.
The Clippers are the most surprising team on the list, but only because they dealt Harris unexpectedly last season. Even so, the team and player had success together and the relationship wasn't necessarily damaged by the deal. Harris is one of the top second-tier free agents available and should have his pick of competitive offers. The Sixers are said to be confident about re-signing him, but they won't be able to do so without a fight.

Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting that the Sixers are "privately expressing confidence" that they'll be able to re-sign Jimmy Butler and Tobias Harris.
Butler is drawing heavy interest from the Rockets and has been connected to the Lakers, among others, while Harris has had a relatively quiet start to his free agency from a rumor perspective. The Sixers can offer either player more than other teams but it remains to be seen whether the players view the fit the same way the team does, or if maxing out their earnings is the top priority. Harris in particular might not want to play fourth fiddle when he is a borderline All-Star. This summer is shaping up to be wild.

The Sixers want to use the No. 24 pick in the upcoming NBA draft on someone who can fit in with Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons, and Jimmy Butler and Tobias Harris, two soon-to-be free agents they hope to re-sign.
“That’s hopefully somebody that can come in and contribute right away,” Vince Rozman, the Sixers’ senior director or scouting, said on Monday. General manager Elton Brand has also said that he might target older players in the draft as the team is looking to strengthen their bench and continue to build a contender. The Sixers continue to workout and evaluate a handful of prospects including Terry Harris, brother of Tobias Harris who was an undersized power forward last season as a fifth-year senior with the Aggies.

The 76ers are bringing in Tobias Harris' younger brothers for free-agent and predraft workouts according to Kieth Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer.
There is Tyler Harris, 24, who could be looked at for a two-way contract and Terry Harris, 22, who could potentially go to Philly as a 2nd round pick or undrafted free agent. We've seen teams go to this tactic in the past to woo their free-agent relative back onto the squad (a notable example is JR Smith with the Knicks in 2012). It is unclear if Philly will end up signing either, but the report suggests that they are prepared to pull out all the stops for retaining their core from last season.

Keith Pompey of the Phily Inquirer is reporting that Tobias Harris will be on the radar of at least five teams, including the Kings, the Mavs, the Jazz, the Nets and the Pacers, all of which have room to add a maximum-salary free agent.
The Sixers will have a full plate this offseason as they have three starters headed toward unrestricted free agency this summer in Jimmy Butler, Tobias Harris and J.J. Redick. Philadelphia owns Harris’ Bird rights, meaning they can offer him the most-lucrative deal, a five-year, $188 million pact while the most another team could offer would be a four-year deal at $141 million. Harris will soon be turning 27 and entering his prime and his services will absolutely be in demand even thought he averaged just 15.5 points and 9.2 rebounds in 12 playoff games this year.
