as someone who vehemently remembers the Rockets/Thunder series from the bubble i still cannot believe how far Lu Dort’s three-point jumper has come. from “treat him like Ben Simmons out there” to “that’s a layup for him” in legit 1.5 years. – 8:54 PM

76ers’ Ben Simmons willing to sit out entire season if not traded by Feb. 10 deadline, per report

Tobias Harris has fouled out. He’ll finish with 7 points on 3/11 shooting with 1 rebound and 1 assist. #Sixers4:10 PM
Quinton Mayo @RealQuintonMayo
Neto is guarding Tobias. – 2:57 PM
Dave Early @DavidEarly
If keeping Harden in BK this summer is contingent on BK finding a Kyrie Irving resolution (full time player or trade) then a “look take Ben Simmons for Harden if James wants to leave or take him for Kyrie if James stays” isn’t the worst plan for both teams to book mark is it? – 1:57 PM

Marc Stein @TheSteinLine
As the Sixers go for their 11th win in 13 games this afternoon at Washington … just making sure you didn’t miss the public backing Daryl Morey received over the weekend on his patient Ben Simmons trade approach from a certain Joel Embiid.

The trade deadline is Feb. 10.
Here’s 4 potential trades for Ben Simmons, Damian Lillard, Myles Turner & Christian Wood
That give the Sixers, Blazers, Magic, Hawks, Knicks, Rockets, Pacers and Hornets new hope.

Tobias Harris was big in the 1st half to keep the team in the game while Joel Embiid was waiting to get going. Doc Rivers praised him for his work. #Sixers sixerswire.usatoday.com/2022/01/16/doc… via @SixersWire11:10 AM
Ky Carlin @Ky_Carlin
Doc Rivers said Tobias Harris saved the team in the 1st half with his offense. They don’t win this game without Tobias in the 1st half. #Sixers10:39 PM
Rich Hoffman @rich_hofmann
Sixers win in Miami, 109-98. They are 25-17. And that might be the season’s best win.
Tobias Harris (22 points on 9-13 FG) and defense kept them afloat in a tough first half. The shotmaking from Joel Embiid (32-12-3) and Seth Curry (21-5-5) to close it out was super high-level. – 10:30 PM
Ky Carlin @Ky_Carlin
Seth Curry triples and Philly has a 75-73 lead after 3. Curry, Tobias Harris, and Joel Embiid have 19 points each. Jimmy Butler and Kyle Lowry are shooting a combined 2/15 from the floor. #Sixers9:51 PM
Ky Carlin @Ky_Carlin
Seth Curry and Tobias Harris are a combined 7/10 from deep. The rest of the team is 0/12. #Sixers9:37 PM
Rich Hoffman @rich_hofmann
Sixers trail Miami 50-43 at the half. Really could’ve been a lot worse, Heat shot 3-16 from beyond the arc.
Tough offensive half for everyone not named Tobias Harris (6-8 FG, 15 points). Miami’s defense is very impressive. – 9:11 PM
Keith Pompey @PompeyOnSixers
The #Heat lead 38-37 w/ 4:36 left in the half. Tobias Harris is shooting 5-7 while his #Sixers teammates are a combined 9-27. The #Heat hold an 18-1 advantage in bench points. – 9:00 PM
Lauren Rosen @LaurenMRosen
Tobias Harris’ first 15 minutes tonight:
13 PTS / 2 REB / 5-7 fg / 3-3 3fg – 8:56 PM
Ky Carlin @Ky_Carlin
Tobias Harris is now 3/3 from deep. He’s up to 13 points and his play is keeping Philly in the game. It also helps that the Heat are just 3/15 from deep despite some excellent looks on their part. #Sixers8:54 PM
Ky Carlin @Ky_Carlin
Furkan Korkmaz gets the start in place of Matisse Thybulle. He joins Tyrese Maxey, Seth Curry, Tobias Harris, and Joel Embiid in the lineup. #Sixers7:41 PM

More on this storyline

Tobias Harris’ name has indeed circulated in those trade conversations, sources told B/R. The Sixers insist they’re not actively searching to offload the final two years and roughly $80 million remaining on Harris’ contract. But Philadelphia’s only player considered untouchable is Embiid and Embiid alone. 
The Sixers have broached the idea of sending out Harris in various three-team packages, in the event that a Simmons trade brings back another highly compensated player such as Collins who’s best positioned at power forward just like Harris. Another example in that concept: Harrison Barnes could be part of any potential Sacramento package. -via Bleacher Report / January 13, 2022
Following the Sixers’ 109-98 loss to the Charlotte Hornets Wednesday night, Harris was asked his thoughts on seeing his name pop up in rumors. Based on his response, it does not appear he is fazed by the situation. “This is my 11th year in the NBA. It’s not my first rodeo. It’s not the first time I’ve been in trade rumors, and it probably won’t be the last, so that’s that,” he said. -via Clutch Points / January 13, 2022
