With so many teams pursuing the top-level free agents, the LA Clippers have reportedly already begun setting up their backup plan. According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, the Clippers "should express interest" in Harris if they fail to land Raptors superstar Kawhi Leonard.
Harris, of course, was traded by the same Clippers franchise to Philadelphia just four months ago. That transaction, according to Charania, appears to have done little to no damage to Harris' regard for the up-and-coming Clippers.
In 55 regular season games with the Clippers, Harris averaged 20.9 points on 49.6% shooting, 7.9 rebounds, and 2.7 assists. In comparison, in 27 games with the 76ers, Harris put up 18.2 points on a 46.9% clip, 7.9 rebounds, and 2.9 assists.
