The 76ers acquired Harris at this season's trade deadline in a deal that saw the LA Clippers receive several draft picks, plus Landry Shamet, the 26th pick in the 2018 NBA Draft.
Harris went from averaging 20.9 points per game with the Clippers to 18.2 points per game with the 76ers. He saw his scoring numbers decline further in the playoffs, but Harris had a couple of big games in the first round, none bigger than his 29-point, 16-rebound performance in Game 3 against the Brooklyn Nets.
"In every way, I am thrilled to be staying with the 76ers and getting to work on everything - playing with my teammates again, impacting young people and, yes, bringing a championship back to Philadelphia," Harris wrote on ESPN. "I can't wait to get started."
After two seasons with the 76ers, JJ Redick has reportedly signed a two-year, $26.5 million deal with the New Orleans Pelicans. Jimmy Butler has yet to announce his free agency decision.
Players can negotiate agreements with teams on July 1 but contracts can't be officially signed until the new league year begins on July 7.
