Over the next few weeks, we’ll be profiling every player currently on the Sixers’ roster ahead of training camp, which begins on September 28.
Contract status: Third year of five-year, $180 million contract
Let’s start with the elephant in the room. Tobias Harris is the highest-paid Sixer for the upcoming season. Doc got the message across to Harris to act more decisively with the ball, and the result was Harris’ best-shooting season of his career, along with a career-high 3.5 assists per game. If the Sixers eventually receive a primary ball handler in return who will actually shoot the ball, much less of the late-game burden will fall on Harris’ shoulders.
