76ers match 3-year, $23M offer sheet on Paul Reed

The Philadelphia 76ers have matched restricted free agent forward Paul Reed’s three-year, $23 million offer sheet with the Utah Jazz and will keep him. Reed signed the offer sheet on Saturday morning, and the Sixers waited until 90 minutes prior to the 11:59 p.m. ET Sunday deadline to inform Utah that they matched the sheet. Reed has veto power on any trade and can’t be moved to Utah for a full year. One of the terms of the offer sheet provided a unique twist on Reed’s contract: The first season of the contract is fully guaranteed, but the next two seasons, worth $15.7 million, become […]

As one second after another ticked off the clock, Philadelphia 76ers star James Harden continued to eye both the basket and his defender, Boston Celtics center Al Horford, with the Sixers trailing by one in the closing seconds of Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinals Monday night. And, like he has countless times before in his Hall of Fame career, Harden saw the moment when he could create the separation necessary to get off his patented step-back jumper — and took it.
