The Philadelphia 76ers continue to stay busy during the offseason.

According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the 76ers are signing forward Montrezl Harrell.

ESPN Sources: Free agent C Montrezl Harrell is signing two-year deal with the Philadelphia 76ers, including a player option. Harrell brings more toughness to a team searching for it this offseason. He was Sixth Man of the Year with Doc Rivers/Sam Cassell in 2019-2020 w/ Clippers.

The deal reunites him with former coaches Doc Rivers and Sam Cassell and former teammate James Harden, who played with him as members of the Houston Rockets from 2015-17.

It’s been a busy offseason for Harrell, who has been looking for a home after the Charlotte Hornets were disinterested in bringing him back. However, he now has a home in Philadelphia for the next two seasons.

The Portland Trail Blazers face Harrell and the 76ers on Jan. 19 at home and Mar. 10 in Philadelphia.
