The stakes have once again been raised for the Philadelphia 76ers this offseason, as the dessert chain Crumbl Cookie has offered a free cookie to entire the city if Tobias Harris remains on the team.
Harris, who partnered with Crumbl Cookie in 2022, has been at the center of Sixers trade rumors. Without any upcoming first-round draft picks, his expiring contract next season is the only real trade asset the Sixers have if they’re looking to get better.
He took the time to address those trade rumors when talking to reporters at a Fanatics (charity?) event at the Wells Fargo Center Tuesday afternoon. Harris made sure to walk back his dad’s comments about his role on the team, while also making his case as an impact wing in the league, and plugging his business partnership.

“I was OK with that role (as the fourth option). I never complained about it.”

Surely, the opportunity of free cookies for all will weigh heavily on this decision for Daryl Morey and the entire Sixers front office.
