Philadelphia acquired Harris in a deadline deal with the Clippers in 2018-19. He averaged 18.2 points and 7.9 rebounds in 27 regular-season games with the 76ers.
Harris has bounced around the NBA and has played for five teams in eight seasons, averaging 15.4 points per game while shooting 36.4% from 3-point range in 546 career appearances.
“There’s only so many players that are super stable in the NBA, let’s just be upfront with that,” Harris said about his approach to free agency last month. “For me honestly, style of play is a huge thing. Culture. A chance to be able to win. Just being in the playoffs here and getting that feeling.”
The Nets, Grizzlies, Jazz, Clippers, Mavericks, Nuggets and Pelicans have all been linked to Harris this summer.
Philadelphia wing Jimmy Butler is also a free agent this summer and he’s expected to receive a max contract wherever he signs.
