With reports / rumors Tobias Harris may be on the trade block, and may want a bigger on ball roll with more pick-and-roll action, I dug in on if that’s a good idea.… – 11:19 AM

More on this storyline

The Sixers have said they want to keep their core players – Joel Embiid, Tyrese Maxey, Harris, and Harden – intact. However, league sources are saying the team is looking for suitors for Harris, who has two years and $ 76.9 million remaining on his deal. -via The Philadelphia Inquirer / June 22, 2022

Tobias Harris will continue to be mentioned in trade scenarios for Philadelphia as well. The veteran swingman now has only two seasons remaining on the five-year, $ 180 million contract he signed in 2019. The Sixers appear more than open to Harris returning next season. He has received rave reviews from staffers for his team-first mentality and locker room presence, but the Sixers are exploring all options to improve their roster around Harden and Embiid, as well as rising combo guard Tyrese Maxey. -via Bleacher Report / June 16, 2022

The 76ers are trying to put things in place ahead of the June 23 NBA draft and free agency. Multiple league sources have said the team is gauging team’s interest in Tobias Harris, Matisse Thybulle, Furkan Korkmaz and Shake Milton, in addition to potential trade partners for Danny Green and the No. 23 pick. -via The Philadelphia Inquirer / June 15, 2022

Kyle Neubeck: Woj on ESPN’s mock draft just now: If you’re a GM who hasn’t gotten an offer from the Sixers involving pick No. 23 and Matisse Thybulle, “You probably have had your phone shut off” -via Twitter @KyleNeubeck / June 22, 2022

To do so, the Sixers are exploring various trade scenarios revolving around the No. 23 pick, Danny Green’s $ 10 million contract and 25-year-old wing Matisse Thybulle, sources said. To move Green, who suffered a torn ACL and LCL in his left knee during the playoffs, the Sixers would have to guarantee the $ 10 million on his contract for the 2022-23 campaign. -via Bleacher Report / June 16, 2022
