76ers’ Tobias Harris Discusses Decision to Stay with Team

Published

on

Philadelphia 76ers forward Tobias Harris just landed a massive five-year $180 million deal to stay with the Sixers, and he talked about his decision to continue playing for the Sixers.

“I want to be somewhere that I can call home. Finally, I can do that now: I’m a Philadelphia 76er.,” Harris wrote on ESPN.

“We had a talented group and made a great run all the way to Game 7 against the eventual NBA champions, the Toronto Raptors. We will always remember Kawhi Leonard’s shot bouncing on the rim and, finally, falling through the net. It was a heartbreaking loss, the kind that motivates you to want to get back into the playoffs — and go even further.

“In every way, I am thrilled to be staying with the 76ers and getting to work on everything — playing with my teammates again, impacting young people and, yes, bringing a championship back to Philadelphia. I can’t wait to get started.”

Washington Wizards’ guard Isaiah Thomas is looking to find a permanent home as he gets his career back on track.

Thomas is currently on a one-year minimum contract with the Wizards, and while he didn’t rule out a long-term deal with Washington, he did state his goal is on this long-term future.

“I want to be somewhere I can be three or four years,” Thomas said, according to Fred Katz of The Athletic.

“I was in Sacramento for three years. I was in Boston for three years. Even though that’s not a long time, I was comfortable there. My family was able to build relationships with people around the organization, people around the city. It just made things easier. So, what I am looking for — obviously, I want to get paid the most I possibly can, because I feel like I deserve that, but I also want to be able to be somewhere for a while.”

Thomas is averaging 13.2 points and 6.2 assists per game for the Wizards this season.
