With the 2022-23 NBA season right around the corner, it is time for rankings of where each player stands in the league.
The Philadelphia 76ers have some of the top talent in the league, led by star duo Joel Embiid and James Harden, rising star Tyrese Maxey and versatile forward Tobias Harris. Therefore, they will have representatives on a great many top ranking lists.
ESPN put together its NBARank list for the season and listed Harris as the 56th best player in the league after his strong finish to the 2021-22 season.
ESPN on Harris:
Over the final two months of last season, Harris settled into a groove playing alongside midseason acquisition James Harden and arguably played the best basketball of his career. But on a team where he is now arguably the fourth scoring option, can he continue to handle that sort of role over the course of a full season? (Harris will also spend more time at small forward due to the arrival of PJ Tucker.)
Harris averaged 17.2 points and 6.8 rebounds in the 2021-22 season and he shot 40% from deep after the All-Star break once Harden joined the team. His ability to adjust to new roles on the fly has been impressive, and he will have to adjust yet again in the 2022-23 season with the arrival of PJ Tucker.
