We'll see if he can carry this play quality even in the post season: it will be an huge leap for him and for the Sixers.

Imho he's even defending better tha in the past...definitley not a minus.


The contract is terrible. But it is what it is. Can't blame the player for that.

Harris is playing the best basketball of his career. His contract is just fine.

Tobias’s turnaround has really been awesome to me. There is no reason for him to be as good as he’s been given the type of player he was coming into the league and even after his first couple of years. On top of that, he’s been a great locker room guy and off the court representative. He is 100% worth his contract now. We need another creator on this team to give Tobi more opportunities to exploit matchups.

And he gets better every season. No excuses.

Definitely not terrible. I would’ve been looking to dump it for anything in the off-season just to get off of a supremely negative value contract. Now I’d only think about trading him for an equal or slightly-lesser talent in the form of a guard that can relieve some more shot creating duties.

I still think Morey is going to sneakily try to trade Tobi this offseason or by next season’s trade deadline.

Trick teams while the value is the highest.

If Morey does it will be for a good asset, I have no worries about that.

The list of people I would trade him for has become significantly smaller

I would only trade Tobias in a package for Beal or Lavine. I wouldnt trade him for spare parts just to get rid of his contract, as we would be way worse.

Lets face it: Simmons will never be a reliable scorer in the playoffs as he doesnt shoot( Always will be relegated to the dunker spot) so we need a second scorer.

He may not be ideal( we would be better with a backcourt creator) but he's playing really well and still improving.

I would only trade Tobias for Doncic or Giannis.

It’d be great if there were a way to restructure Tobias’s contract while also bringing in a perimeter shot-creator. Realistically, there’s only room for one or the other as things stand. Impressed with the way he’s playing though.
