Montrezl Harrell Inking 2-Year Deal With 76ers

Free agent center Montrezl Harrell is reportedly inking a two-year deal with the Philadelphia 76ers, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. The latter year includes a player option.

Harrell is just two years removed from winning the Sixth Man of the Year award under Doc Rivers, who was then with the 6-foot-7 big man with the Los Angeles Clippers. In that 2019-20 season, Harrell averaged 18.6 points and 7.1 rebounds.

The 28-year-old has bounced around the last couple of seasons. After his career year with the Clippers, Harrell moved to the other side of the fence in Tinseltown and signed with the Los Angeles Lakers.

In the summer of 2021, Harrell was traded to the Washington Wizards in the deal that sent Russell Westbrook to Los Angeles. He was later dealt to the Charlotte Hornets midway through the 2021-22 campaign.

Despite a rather tumultuous last couple of years, including a felony charge on trafficking marijuana earlier this offseason, which has since been reduced to possession of marijuana and a misdemeanor.

With the Sixers, Harrell will look to get his career back on track, serving as the primary backup of MVP runner-up Joel Embiid.
