Brooklyn Nets: Tobias Harris

The 76ers may have bounced the Nets from the first round of the NBA Playoffs, but the Nets may end up having the last laugh. Philly will be tasked with negotiating deals for Harris, Jimmy Butler, and J.J. Redick, and it’s unlikely all three will be wearing a 76er jersey next season.
Drawing conclusions from the team’s postseason run, it seems as if Butler is a more natural fit on the current 76ers team. Philadelphia sent a king’s ransom to Los Angeles for Harris mid-season, but the former Clipper never fully carved a niche for himself in Brett Brown’s offense.
Philadelphia’s loss could end up being Brooklyn’s gain, as the Nets could sorely use a scoring-minded forward to pair with D’Angelo Russell, Caris LeVert and Spencer Dinwiddie.
