4. Tobias Harris

Harris is in the final year of his contract, and the 76ers are preserving cap space this summer. Philadelphia may look to add a third star, but doing so would mean letting go of multiple players' Bird Rights, including the 6’8 forward. Harris can get buckets, rebound, make plays, and space the floor. He is adaptable to whatever role his team needs and figures to draw plenty of interest on the open market.

Harris is averaging 17.7 points, 6.0 rebounds, 3.4 assists, and 1.0 steal in 34.0 minutes per game for the Sixers this season. He is shooting over 50 percent from the field and 89.6 percent on his free throw. The 31-year-old is in his 13th NBA season, but the veteran is still improving his game.

The Spurs would love to have a stretch four playing next to Victor Wembanyama in the frontcourt. The 7’4 rookie will protect the rim and patrol the paint. Harris could grab boards and create space for the offense to operate. San Antonio would need a point guard, but Harris improves their odds of winning and gives them a veteran capable of getting buckets on any team.

Tobias Harris would be a strong addition but below All-Star level. If the San Antonio Spurs want a star, they could look to bring back a skilled forward.
