Forward Tobias Harris has agreed to a five-year deal with the 76ers, he wrote in a piece for ESPN. Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.com was the first to report the news and said the deal is worth $180 million.

"There's nothing about my NBA journey that I would change—the teams, the cities, the teammates, the fans have all helped me grow into the player and person that I've become," Harris wrote. "Every time I moved, I saw the bright side. Always, I saw opportunity.

"Still, I want to be somewhere that I can call home. Finally, I can do that now: I'm a Philadelphia 76er."

Harris averaged 20 points, 7.9 rebounds and 2.0 assists last season. The 76ers finished at 51–31, losing to the Raptors in the Eastern Conference semifinals after moving past the Nets in the first round. 

The 26-year-old was sent to the Sixers in a six-player deal ahead of the 2019 trade deadline. Philadelphia brought in Harris, Boban Marjanovic and Mike Scott in exchange for Wilson Chandler, Mike Muscala, Landry Shamet, a 2020 lottery protected first-round pick, the rights to the Heat's 2021 first-round pick, and the rights to the Pistons' 2021 second-round pick and a 2023 second-round pick.

Harris was drafted at No. 19 overall by Charlotte in the 2011 NBA draft out of Tennessee and then traded to Milwaukee. He's also played for the Magic and Pistons, before being traded to the Clippers in 2018.
