From Keith:

Detroit just brought in Monty Williams and they’re trying to turn a corner with young talent. Same thing with the Pacers really, who have Tyrese Haliburton, Bennedict Mathurin, and a handful of other guys under the age of 24. Cleveland is the best team of the bunch but coming off a disappointing 4-1 series loss to the Knicks after winning 51 regular season games.

Harris is going into the final season of his five year, $180 million deal and hits the cap around 40 million. Seems like Sixers fans are split on what do with Tobias. On one hand, it’s a brutal cap hit for a fourth option on offense, but there’s a dearth of two-way wings on this Sixers roster and Harris does provide something that Joel Embiid, James Harden, and Tyrese Maxey do not. Are you trading Harris for a bag of Doritos just to get off the contract, or thinking, “well, we made it this far, let’s just see it out“? It’s not like the Sixers have a bunch of assets sitting around anyway, or else the idea of attaching a pick to get off the Harris contract last year or the year prior would have been more realistic. Daryl Morey inherited two Elton Brand albatross contracts in Harris and Al Horford and immediately moved the latter while sticking with the former.

There’s just not a lot of wiggle room right now. The Harden domino probably has to fall first.
