Philadelphia gave up a haul to get Harris from the Los Angeles Clippers, and now they are making sure he stays. The Clippers traded Harris to try to clear out cap space to chase free agents, while the Sixers were all in on bringing a championship to Philadelphia.
The deal may finally bring some stability to the well-traveled Harris. The Sixers wing was drafted by the then-Charlotte Bobcats before being sent to the Milwaukee Bucks. The Bucks traded Harris to the Orlando Magic halfway through his second season, and he has since played for the Detroit Pistons, Clippers and 76ers.
Harris is looking to build off a season where he averaged 18.2 points, 7.9 rebounds and 2.9 assists while with the 76ers.
