Tobias Harris will become an unrestricted free agent for the first time in his career and he won't be short of options.
<p>The Grizzlies, Jazz, Mavericks, Nets, Kings and Pacers have all been linked to the talented forward and a return to the 76ers is not out of the question.</p><p>Sporting News recently reported that the Jazz want to pursue Harris to add 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>All the teams mentioned above except for the Grizzlies can offer Harris a max contract. That said, the Grizzlies 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 they can also make cost-cutting moves to open up max space.<br />Harris is eligible for a five-year deal from the 76ers worth slightly under $190 million. If he leaves, the max for him would be four years and roughly $140.6 million.</p><p>According to Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer, the 76ers will likely have to offer Harris a five-year max contract to keep him.</p><p>The 76ers traded 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 the Clippers for Harris, Boban Marjanovic and Mike Scott on February 6.</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; improve to 2-0 with Tobias Harris in the line-up! &lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/hashtag/HereTheyCome?src=hash&amp;amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;#HereTheyCome&lt;/a&gt; &lt;a href=\"https://t.co/Gv8em6JI8t\"&gt;pic.twitter.com/Gv8em6JI8t&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p&gt;— NBA (@NBA) &lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/NBA/status/1094752277469061121?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;February 11, 2019&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/blockquote&gt;\n&lt;script async src=\"https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js\" charset=\"utf-8\"&gt;&lt;/script&gt;"}[/]</div><div> </div><p>Harris averaged career-highs of 20.9 points per game on 43.4 percent shooting from beyond the arc in 55 games with the Clippers this season.</p><p>His numbers dropped a bit with the 76ers, which is understandable because he was their third or fourth option on offense. He still averaged 18.2 points and 7.9 rebounds in 27 games with the 76ers and he contributed with 15.5 points, 9.2 rebounds and 4.0 assists in 12 playoff games.</p><p>Team chemistry can be a factor for Harris to consider before making his decision and while he wants to win an NBA Championship and get a max contract, he also wants to be in a good situation.</p><p>The 76ers, Jazz and Nets seem like the best options because of their recent playoff success and Harris apparently enjoyed his time in Philadelphia.</p><p>Tobias Harris and Jimmy Butler recently liked a Ben Simmons Instagram Post that said #runitback and while this obviously doesn't mean that their futures are no longer up in the air, it's certainly noteworthy to see both star free agents react positively to Simmons' message.</p><div>[/]{"component": "embedHTML", "code": "&lt;blockquote class=\"instagram-media\" data-instgrm-captioned data-instgrm-permalink=\"https://www.instagram.com/p/BxqaAnQFkxb/\" data-instgrm-version=\"12\" style=\"background:#FFF;border:0;border-radius:3px;box-shadow:0 0 1px 0 rgba(0,0,0,0.5),0 1px 10px 0 rgba(0,0,0,0.15);margin:1px;max-width:540px;min-width:326px;padding:0;width:99.375%;width:-webkit-calc(100% - 2px);width:calc(100% - 2px)\"&gt;&lt;div style=\"padding:16px\"&gt;
