Sixers keep Harris for 5 years, $180M

Free-agent forward Tobias Harris has agreed to a five-year, $180 million contract to return to the Philadelphia 76ers, his agent and father, Torrel Harris of Unique Sports Management, told ESPN.

The deal includes no player option, Torrel Harris said.

Tobias Harris met with Sixers general manager Elton Brand and ownership on Sunday at the Sixers’ practice facility and quickly reached an agreement on the massive new deal.

Harris, 26, has been the central focus of the Sixers’ free-agent recruitment. The Sixers traded two future first-round picks and 2018 first-round pick Landry Shamet as part of a package to acquire Harris in February from the LA Clippers.

Harris has played with Milwaukee Bucks, Orlando Magic, Detroit Pistons, the Clippers and 76ers in his eight-season NBA career.
