Pistons Sign Tobias Harris to 2-Year, $52M Deal

The Detroit Pistons have signed free agent forward Tobias Harris to a two-year, $52 million contract, as confirmed by sources. Harris, who turns 32 on July 15, previously played for the Philadelphia 76ers, where he averaged 17.2 points, 6.5 rebounds, and 3.1 assists last season.

Harris, originally the 19th overall pick in the 2011 NBA draft, has been a consistent performer throughout his career. He previously played for the Pistons from 2016 to 2018 before being traded to the LA Clippers. During his final season with the Pistons, he averaged 18.1 points per game and shot 40.9% from 3-point range.

In his time with the 76ers, Harris signed a five-year, $180 million contract and remained a reliable presence, playing in at least 70 games in four of the last five seasons. Despite some frustration from Sixers fans, Harris has proven to be a durable and versatile player.

The Pistons, under new president Trajan Langdon, are making significant moves this offseason. Along with signing Harris, they hired J.B. Bickerstaff as the new head coach and plan to sign Cade Cunningham to a $226 million max extension. The team also drafted forward Ron Holland and traded up to acquire forward Bobi Klintman.

With $51 million in cap space entering free agency, the Pistons are addressing key needs such as outside shooting and rim protection. Harris’s return to Detroit is seen as a crucial step in bolstering their roster.
