Philadelphia 76ers could be on the way to fully retool their roster around Joel Embiid as they are not only trying to trade Ben Simmons, but they’re also shopping fellow team’s star Tobias Harris.

According to Mitch Lawrence of SiriusXMNBA, the Sixers have offered Harris to several teams, including the Houston Rockets, who turned down Philadelphia’s offer.

The 29-year-old has three years remaining on the five-year, $180 million deal he signed with Philadelphia in 2019. He averaged 19.5 points and 6.8 rebounds per game last season, being a strong contributor during the regular season.

The 76ers finished with the best NBA record this past season, but, trying to trade Harris and Simmons is a strong indication that they do not believe the current roster can bring a title to Philadelphia.
