The Philadelphia 76ers are preparing for a significant offseason reshuffle after another early NBA postseason exit. Tobias Harris is likely on his way out as the team aims to realign its roster around stars Joel Embiid and Tyrese Maxey.

Despite previously being a consistent contributor, ESPN’s Tim Bontemps reports that Harris is expected to find a new team due to his playoff performance dip and high salary.

Harris, who averaged 17.2 points per game during the regular season but only 10.8 in the playoffs, has become a less viable option for the 76ers as they focus on achieving deeper postseason success. His departure would free up substantial cap space, enabling Philadelphia to pursue other high-profile players who could better complement Embiid and Maxey’s dynamic play.

A recent report from ESPN’s Brian Windhorst highlighted that the 76ers have their sights set on several big names in the NBA, including Paul George, Jimmy Butler, and Brandon Ingram. George, who has a decision to make on his $48.8 million player option with the Los Angeles Clippers, tops the list of desired acquisitions for Philadelphia, which is ready to offer him a max contract if he opts out.

With his previous experience helping lead the Sixers in the playoffs, Jimmy Butler and Brandon Ingram, known for their scoring ability and youth, are also on Philadelphia’s radar. Butler’s potential availability from the Miami Heat and Ingram’s role with the New Orleans Pelicans make them attractive targets as the 76ers look to bolster their lineup.

Philadelphia’s pursuit of such top-tier talent underscores its commitment to transforming its playoff potential into a tangible championship contender. With several future first-round draft picks at its disposal, the Sixers are well-positioned to make significant moves through free agency or trades.
