Tobias Harris is a finalist for the NBA’s 2018-19 Community Assist award.
The 76er is one of 10 players up for the honor, which recognizes his contributions to his community throughout the season.
Harris, who joined the Sixers at the trade deadline in February, has partnered with Team Up Philly and the National Education Association. In March, he hosted “Game Changers: Women in Sports, Tech & Literacy,” a panel aiming to give middle-school girls the tools to explore various career paths. Panelists included Sixers data scientist Ivana Seric, Philly Startup Leaders executive director Kiera Smalls.
