What? Simmons grades out rather favorably.
A +1.80 from 2019-2021 which was higher than the LEBRON Devin Booker just put up for his 2021 finals run and some other notable names, and a +1.53 from 2016-2018.
If anything it was another dagger into displaying how unimpressive Tobias Harris is.
His highest 3 year stretch was a +0.97 from 2017-2019, which only encompasses his 2019 playoff run with us. He missed the playoffs the two prior years.
When you include 2020 (his 2018-2020 split) he scores out a -0.61. So he was abysmal vs Boston to take his 0.97 and turn his overall rating comfortably negative.
One more years worth of Tobias data, and three playoff runs in Philadelphia, 2019-2021; Tobias Harris scores a -1.48... (Ben: +1.80 over that same stretch). So he's literally getting worse with increased responsibility.
Role player on an inflated contract.
