All things considered, most people would probably agree that the Philadelphia 76ers have had a successful regular season. Preseason expectations were already modest to begin with, but the team managed to stay in the playoffs loop despite a notable drama early on and a longtime injury-related absence from Joel Embiid.

Having said that, a handful of players on the roster showed little to warrant a stronger staying power with the franchise as they consequently hurt their contract value entering free agency. Here are four players who may not see a huge payday in the offseason.

1. Tobias Harris

After having a strong, efficient start to the season as the Philly’s designated third option, Tobias Harris seemed to present a strong case to remain with the 76ers despite a complicated free agency situation. Those talks are ancient history now, as the veteran has since struggled taking on a bigger responsibility, especially when Embiid went down to injury.

By all odds, Harris is unlikely to don the Sixers’ colors any longer, as Philly’s brass will conversely leverage the massive cap relief off of Harris’ contract to put their lofty summer plans into fruition. Unfortunately for the veteran, the current cap situation in the NBA could prove to be a tough trek for him to snag a good payday.

Most teams with ample cap space and can afford Harris even at a heavily discounted rate do not have a pressing need for a one-dimensional scoring tweener. His best shot at landing a considerable contract could very well come through a sign-and-trade set-up, though another team would have to be amenable to paying him a lot to make it work.
