This season there has been plenty of trade articles written about Ben Simmons and rightfully so. The Philadelphia 76ers point guard has yet to make his season debut with the franchise after making it clear he didn’t want to return to the club.

However, this article won’t be focused on that Sixers’ player. Instead, this article will be focused on the 76ers’ highest-paid player this season. No, it’s not Joel Embiid, but power forward Tobias Harris.

Potential trades the Sixers could make for Harris.

While making a deal moving Simmons should be the primary focus of Philly’s front office, a Harris trade should be a close second. He’s not had a great season, after having a career year last year and being in the All-Star conversation.

This year, he’s averaging 18.5 points, 7.7 rebounds, and 3.4 assists, while making 45.9 percent of his field goals and 29.9 percent from the 3-point line. His 3-point percentage is the third-worst of this career.

What makes this worse is that Harris is getting paid $36 million this season and is on the books for two more seasons. He’ll be making $40 million in the final year of that deal. At the age of 29, he’s not getting any better and there’s an argument that he will be getting worse as he gets older into this contract.

For more on how Harris is hurting the Sixers, check out Christopher Kline’s recent article on this site.

Let’s not kid ourselves as a fanbase, it will be hard for the Sixers to move him. However, if there’s a chance they can they need to take it. With that in mind, I have developed three potential trades that could in theory get a deal done.

It should be noted that I did a similar article during this offseason, but based on the new information this season has provided, I’ve come up with three new potential deals. All trades have been tested on Fanspo.com.
