How Tobias Harris must improve as Sixers’ No. 2 option: Getting to the line
Tobias Harris has shown in spurts that he can be a closer and a highly efficient scorer and mid-range specialist, especially when it comes to playing at home. Averaging only 3.3 free throws per game last season, Harris only made 182 free throws total in comparison to Joel Embiid, who made a total of 471.
