The final two years of the contract become guaranteed if the Sixers win in the first round of the playoffs this season, Wojnarowski added.
Reed, 24, was the main backup to All-Star center Joel Embiid last season, appearing in 69 games and offering some determined defense down low. He doesn’t shoot or score much, but his strength, hustle and energy proved to be underrated assets in the Sixers’ second unit.
“Reed, the 58th pick in the 2020 NBA draft, ranked in the Top 10 in offensive rebounding percentage last season, according to ESPN Stats and Information research,” Wojnarowski wrote.
The 76ers are matching Paul Reed’s three-year, $23M offer sheet with the Jazz, sources tell ESPN. Per sheet’s terms, Sixers must guarantee last two years of Reed’s deal if they win the opening round of playoffs this season.
