The Philadelphia 76ers are gauging trade interest in wings Tobias Harris, Matisse Thybulle, Furkan Korkmaz, and Shake Milton, sources told The Philadelphia Inquirer's Keith Pompey.

The Sixers are also reportedly interested in offloading veteran wing Danny Green and the No. 23 pick.

Philadelphia is seeking to acquire established players as it believes its current roster can't win a championship, Pompey notes.

If the Sixers trade the No. 23 pick, they won't have another first-round selection until 2024. The Brooklyn Nets chose to acquire Philadelphia's 2023 draft choice earlier this month as part of the James Harden trade.

Harris has two years left on his deal worth around $77 million. The 29-year-old has averaged 18.7 points, 6.9 rebounds, and 3.3 assists in 234 contests for Philadelphia.

The 76ers reportedly had trade discussions with the Oklahoma City Thunder regarding the veteran forward before February's trade deadline. However, no deal materialized.

Although Thybulle has made two consecutive appearances on the NBA All-Defensive second team, he hasn't averaged more than six points per game in his three years in the league. He also missed all of the Sixers' road games during their first-round series against the Toronto Raptors due to his vaccination status.

The team refused to trade Thybulle for Harden. Instead, Philadelphia sent Ben Simmons, Seth Curry, Andre Drummond, and two future first-rounders to the Nets.

Although Green has been a consistent rotation player for the Sixers, the 34-year-old tore his ACL and LCL during their second-round defeat to the Miami Heat. Milton and Korkmaz saw their roles decrease after the Harden trade and Tyrese Maxey's emergence.

The Indiana Pacers were reportedly interested in acquiring Korkmaz at last season's trade deadline, Pompey adds.
