4 Shooters the Toronto Raptors can poach from division rivals

The Toronto Raptors need to add more shooting this summer, and signing any of these free agents would bolster their roster while stealing from a division rival.

No. 2: Tobias Harris, Philadelphia 76ers

The Philadelphia 76ers are heading into the offseason hoping to thread the needle. They have opened up a massive amount of cap space, with only Joel Embiid and Paul Reed under contract; add in Tyrese Maxey's cap hold, and they can command upwards of $70 million in cap space.

Their top plan is to go after players at the very top of the free-agent market. Paul George would be an excellent addition. OG Anunoby is less of a third star but a perfect fit. They could use that cap space to take back someone like Jimmy Butler in a trade.

If they strike out on those options, however, they will want to bring back some of the role players from last season's team, perhaps on one-year contracts to try again next season, or perhaps alongside some free agent signings to build a deep roster of rotation players.

It's unclear what the interest in bringing back Tobias Harris would be given his ups and downs on the court and the massive contract they just finished paying him, but while the public perception on Harris is certainly negative, he is still a useful NBA forward.

Harris is 31 years old and at 6'8" has ideal size as a forward. He is a career 36.8 percent 3-point shooter and is a good rebounder and defender; he's not a lockdown guy but he won't be the weak link in the chain. The Raptors could swoop in and add Harris as their backup at both forward positions and prevent the 76ers from having the option to bring him back.
