NBA champion Matt Barnes chimes on Sixers adding Montrezl Harrell

The Philadelphia 76ers added to their depth on Tuesday when they brought in former 6th Man of the Year Montrezl Harrell on a 2-year deal. The Sixers needed to add some more depth behind Joel Embiid and the Harrell signing achieves that need for them.

Harrell averaged 13.1 points and 6.1 rebounds in 71 games for the Washington Wizards and the Charlotte Hornets in the 2021-22 season and he has experience with some on the Sixers. He played with James Harden while with the Houston Rockets and he played for coach Doc Rivers while with the Los Angeles Clippers so the familiarity will help in his transition.

NBA champion, and current NBA analyst for ESPN, Matt Barnes reacted to the news on his Instagram as he calls it a big pickup for the Sixers.

Barnes is right. Rivers is somebody who relies on experienced and veteran players rather than youngsters when it comes to rotational players and Harrell obviously achieves that box. The Sixers will be looking to him to help the bench unit continue to grow as they chase a title in the 2022-23 season.
