After having an incredible season, Tobias Harris will become an unrestricted free agent for the first time in his career and plenty of teams want to sign him.
<p>The Grizzlies, Jazz, Mavericks, Nets, Kings and Pacers are all believed to be after the talented forward and returning to the 76ers is not out of the question.</p><p>Sporting News recently reported that the Jazz want Harris to help them as an extra scorer alongside Donovan Mitchell.</p><p><em>"The Jazz could be looking to add another scorer this summer. Utah is expected to pursue Tobias Harris in free agency, according to a report from The Athletic, which cites unidentified league sources. The team "would have at least a fighting chance" to sign him if he decides to leave the 76ers, the report says."</em></p><p>Out of the team mentioned above, only the Grizzlies can't offer Harris a max contract. That said, they will likely trade Mike Conley this summer as they're expected to take Ja Morant with the No. 2 pick in the NBA Draft and there's always a chance they can make moves to cut costs and open up max space.</p><p>Harris can sign a five-year deal with the 76ers worth slightly under $190 million and if he leaves, the max for him would be four years and roughly $140.6 million.</p><p>Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer reported that the 76ers will likely have to offer Harris a five-year max contract to keep him.</p><p>Harris came to the 76ers on a trade with the Clippers on February 6. Boban Marjanovic and Mike Scott joined him in Philadelphia while the team sent Wilson Chandler, Landry Shamet, Mike Muscala, their own protected 2020 first round pick, the Heat's unprotected 2021 first round pick and the Pistons' 2021 and 2023 second round picks to Los Angeles.</p><div>[/]{"component": "embedHTML", "code": "&lt;blockquote class=\"twitter-tweet\" data-lang=\"en\"&gt;&lt;p lang=\"en\" dir=\"ltr\"&gt;22 PTS. 6 REB. 6 AST.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;The &lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/sixers?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;@sixers&lt;/a&gt;
